Intervals for Road Racing

Intervals for road racing video by Coach Frank Overton.  Coach Frank describes how threshold, VO2 max, and anaerobic intervals are designed into a training plan for road racing.  The training plan description includes the dreaded and feared diabolical Tabatas.  The Big Cat describes the 'working man's/woman's' training plan design that focuses on short structured road cycling interval workouts mid-week and the longer group plus endurance rides on the weekends.  Watch to the end for a power-based analysis tip for your VO2 Max Intervals
