Sail into Salida on your fastest legs yet with our Colorado State Senior Road Race Championships Training Plan! This 6 week training plan starts June 18th so you’re ready for the Salida Road Race on July 30th!
Hard hill repeats balanced with endurance miles and recovery to make you super fast! You’ll be increasing your ability to climb hard, recover, and repeat with hill-specific interval workouts covering threshold and VO2 power! 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 descending technique too!
And since the Salida Classic is a full weekend of racing, this plan covers options for racing the TT and criterium that weekend too!
Additionally, this training plan includes all the “marginal gains” details to get even faster: Recovery Techniques, Rest Days, Yoga, Foundations, and best of all, Strength and Conditioning – 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.
