Whether you’re going for a state title or are the lead-out for your team’s sprinter, our Colorado State Senior Criterium Championships Training Plan will help you sharpen your sprint legs! This 6 week training plan starts May 28th so you’re ready for the Longmont Criterium on July 9th!
The Longmont Crit is flat and fast with a long finishing straight so you’ll be doing plenty of full gas and anaerobic efforts in this 6-week plan to make you super fast! You’ll be increasing your ability to accelerate hard, recover, and repeat with criterium-specific interval workouts covering anaerobic and VO2 power plus (of course), sprint work! And then there are the dreaded Tabata Intervals (see example workout below) to really sharpen up your legs! A 20min Field Test starts this plan so you can set your Functional Threshold Power and Heart Rate in the included FasCat Zones Sheet, then use your training zones to ride just hard enough to get faster & stronger. Weekend group rides help you hone your pack skills and cornering technique so you’ll know just how much you can push your tires on race day.
