I am new to systm and have done my 1st Full Frontal (4DP Test). It says I am a sprinter (but I know I don’t have the engine to get to the end of a race to sprint : ) FTP 230, MAP – 274, AC 338, and NM 929.
Now I what to start a training plan. I will be doing a number of different kinds of races – my road races will be starting around May – some will be around 40km, some pretty flat and others will be Max of about 600m climbing, all laps, each lap about 15km – I would be aiming at the more rolling/flat races. (I expect the race to last between 1hr and max 2hrs)
Then I will be doing some races about 60km to 90km same as above with each lap about 15km to 30km but will take longer to complete and more climbing. (I expect the race to last between 2hr to 3hrs)
I am looking for a training plan of about 6hrs to 8hrs a week just on the bike (moderate volume). The only problem I can see is I will be doing all my training on Monday to Friday and also doing a Zwift race on a Tue evening. Would it be bad to complete all my training season 5 days in a row with two rest days on Sat and Sun.
Should I do the:
Road – Target event - Metric Century (where is the base part of this plan) or
Road – Target event - Criterium (where is the base part of this plan) or
General fitness – Building Blocks and take them one by one – Base then Tempo then Threshold then MAP
As I am all need to this structured training any help would be great
