I’ve just signed up with TR again after a multi-year hiatus. I’m currently on Zwift which I’ve been using for general fitness. However, I’m looking to compete in a short hill ITT (approx. 3km @ 9%) in just over 2 months out.
I’ll like to achieve fitness gains based on the time I have, which is basically 3 rides totaling to 5 hours a week. Which unfortunately isn’t a lot. I’m convinced a structured training plan with TR will give me most bang for buck.
I’ll like to put in a decent performance given it’ll be the last race I’ll join before the second kid comes along. I’ve done this climb many times before, which isn’t far from where I live, and have raced the ITT before as well. So fortunately no need to spend much time on recon.
I’ve gone into the training plan too and have taken the default plan offered which focuses on sweet spot training. It’s reasonable for me to focus on building a base. However, what it doesn’t seem to recognise is I just want to go eyeballs out as fast as possible during that 3km.
If there’s anything of particular use or interest, please kindly shout out.
Many thanks in advance.
