I think it was Einstein who stated that the definition of madness is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result.
So New Year is the time for new ambitions and we all focus on setting objectives for the 12 months ahead.
My question is - what are you going to change this year.
I will throw i n a couple of things
Firstly as discussed in this thread I have binned my coach of 18 months and I will be following TR plans with some slight amendments.
I have been doing base (sweetspot with a smattering of VO2 in) since October so I will be starting Sweetspot Base 2 Mid- volume next week then moving into Sustained Power build and then the TT speciality plan. That takes me up to May and the start of the TT season in the UK.
Along the way I will be doing the Tour of Sufferlandia Feb 2-10 and also fitting in a Fulgaz Kona Ironman ride at 5:00 hours (if I ride along to the video). I also might attempt the same ride but at my own pace which might be between 5 and 5:30 hours.
New to me will be a sportive (I think they are referred to as Gran Fondos in the US) in June - 100 miles - flattish course.
I will be measuring my time in hours rather than distance and I will be trying to do more outdoor rides. I normally do about 1500 miles out of my annual 5000 outside.
I will be also attempting to improve my mFTP in WKO4 by occasionally trying to improve my weakest points on the PDC curve.
I am quite enthused actually.
