The pre-season plan builds your endurance with sweet spot training. Sweet Spot is perfect for the time crunched collegiate athlete because you don’t have all day to train! Early on in the plan team rides are planned where you can do your sweet spot work freestyle. It’s a great way to push yourself and ride at a faster pace by riding with the team. The other important aspect of the preseason plan is team time trial practice. This is a key event at nationals. So pick a day early in the week where you can ride with your teammates and practice your TTT’ing.
The first few workouts don’t have to be full gas. Work on a smooth rotation, practice how long your pulls will be, getting back into the pace line after your pull, a turn around and also the start! Every second counts and the smoother you can be as a team the faster you will go! If you are unable to get together with the team the plan has a workout that mimics the TTT. The pre-season plan culminates with a Spring Break Training Camp! This is a great opportunity for the final build and push for the collegiate season. You will be doing some nationals specific efforts during this time. You will be doing a higher intensity team ride, followed by some time trial work and finally more sweet spot!
The in-season plan focuses on the six weeks prior to collegiate nationals. This is where you begin interval training and it works because you’ve built a strong base with the pre-season sweet spot plan. The focus of this plan is around Vo2 Max, anaerobic efforts and more TTT work! The road nationals course in Augusta is not known for its big climbs, but it is rolling and punchy. You will want to work on your short full gas efforts. These will help you make and follow attacks and then at the finish.
The weekends are reserved for racing. You will do your higher intensity intervals on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday is an endurance day that would be perfect for a team ride. Friday is off and reserved as a travel day and also finish any school work that needs to be done. If you have time you can also do an easy recovery ride. Mondays will be off and a great chance to make sure you are all caught up with school work, laundry, bike maintenance after the weekend and etc.
The first two weeks include 3 minute and 4 minute Vo2 max efforts. Ideally you can mix these up between on a hill and flats. If you don’t have a hill that is that long you can always try to line up your efforts so you either finish on a hill or start on one and carry the effort over much like an attack at nationals may be.
By the second week of the plan you will resume team time trial practices. By now you should be feeling more comfortable together so increase the effort to race pace. Work on your pacing strategy, learn how to ride little rollers together, downhills and etc and the fastest way for you to go as a team. Don’t forget to continue to work on your starts and also your turn arounds. Again if not team you will have threshold over / under workouts to do that simulate the TTT.
After regionals you will begin to taper and do race specific intervals. Most of these are including hill sprints! Treat them like the finish of the race, or making that race winning move.
