Breck Epic Sweet Spot Training Plan
- Loads of Sweet Spotting to prepare you for long sustained climbs
- Includes Simulation Rides, Nutrition & Fueling Guidance, a Taper into the Race + Leg Openers!
This plan starts with a 20 minute Field test to set your training zones via the included FasCat Wattage and Heart Rate Zones Sheet, especially Sweet Spot! Weekday rides include Sweet Spot and Threshold trail rides with some steady endurance miles too. There are also days to focus on just your trail skills because good trail skills = free speed! The weekends are chock full of Block Training where you'll ride back-to-back days of Sweet Spot on climbs and trails. In order to successfully race for 3 or 6 days around Breckenridge this August, you'll need to ride a TON of Sweet Spot! This plan incorporates plenty of Sweet Spot and some threshold work too so you'll be ready for those 10-30 minute climbs at altitude across multiple days!
You'll use the terrain instead of the timer to achieve 45 > 60 > 90 minutes of Sweet Spot on epic rides as you prepare your legs & lungs for this 3 or 6-day stage race. The long trail rides get you mentally prepared to be on your bike that long too!
This plan includes all the “marginal gains” details to get even faster: Recovery Techniques, Rest Days, Yoga and Foundation work – all you need is a physical therapy style rubber band and MOTIVATION! There are instructional videos in the plan for you to follow along at home.
