I’ve just completed the TT with strength plan with a successful (for me!) TT. I still have races left on the calendar, before doing a couple of hill climbs in the autumn. I therefore have the rough plan of doing the last 8 weeks of the TT plan then the MAP building block. To make some progression rather than doing the exact same block again, I’ve made some substitutions by either adding a little more zone 2 work or extending the weekday endurance rides. Below is the frost 3 weeks of the plan as it now stands.
Monday: Tempo high cadence 4x3
Wednesday: Endurance 1.5 (increased for an hour endurance)
Thursday: FTP/MAP builds 8x3
Sunday: Endurance 2
Monday: Standing starts 6 x 20s (changed from standing starts)
Wednesday: The Bat
Thursday: Chasing Legends (changed from a 1 hour zone 2/3 inspiration ride)
Saturday: FTP Progression 3: 5x8, Open 60
Sunday: Endurance 3
Wednesday: The Holy Week, Open 30 (added open 30 from original plan)
Thursday: 14 Vice Grips
Sunday: Endurance 4
My weakness is MAP though, and I’m wondering if there might be a difference substitution I could make that would help to push this area a bit more. I’m particularly looking at The Bat in the second week.
I’m not sure about doing the MAP block now as I’ve responded well by adding a bit more volume to my mid week rides, rather than adding more intensity, but I’m open to suggestions and advice
