We have a local motor race track that runs crit races once a week from May through to late August. I’ve never raced before but really fancy giving it a try next year. I’m going to go all in with my training, starting with sweetspot base 1/2 followed by short power build and finally crit speciality; all mid volume as I know that the high volume will be too much to fit around work and other commitments.
I’ll be able to race up until the middle of July so expect to enter 8-10 races in total. I want to be competitive in as many of these races as possible so am just wondering when it would be best to schedule the end date of the Crit plan. Should I schedule the end of the plan to fall at the start, middle or closer to the end of the racing block?
I’ve currently got the plan finishing after the 2nd race of the season with the intention of repeating the final 2 weeks worth of the plan until the last race. Would this be stretching the peak too much? Would it be better to plan to peak in the middle of the block of races instead?
Any suggestions and advice would be most appreciated.
