8wk Mid Volume Base w/ Intensity - S.2
This plan is part of the Season 2 release of plans. Designed as, but not limited to, a continuation or stepping stone to cyclists that have already completed the Season 1 Base Plan.
During the 8wk block there is a healthy mixture of building tempo sessions, sweet-spot and small threshold sessions with overall emphasis on testing yourself aerobically.
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.

Weekly Hours - 6 to 8hrs
Frequency - 4/5 workouts per week
Suitable for - Everyone, specifically those coming out of traditional Base work and want to gradually add intensity or want to try some new workouts as part of an extended base.
