BASE "Big Ol' Base" - 12wks - Mid Volume Base
During the 12wk block there is a healthy mixture of building tempo sessions, sweet-spot and small threshold sessions with overall emphasis on testing yourself aerobically with cadence variations and longer steady state efforts.
The vast majority of cyclists already have a substantial ‘base’ fitness if they have been riding for a while even without structured training. This base plan is a step on from that and will send you down a path of consistency, progressive overload and fulfilling training sessions. Plenty to get in to then!
