The power demands of the OMWR can be broken down into 4 parts:
1. Lefthand Canyon > Rowena
2. Linden Climb
3. Old Stage Climb
4. Endurance for 100k’s before, in-between and after 1-3 above
You’ll build endurance and functional threshold + VO2 power with Threshold, Sweet Spot, and Tempo workouts Tuesday > Wednesday > Thursdays. VO2 Interval Workouts are included to get you up and over the final Old Stage Climb!
On Saturdays your plan will have you perform wattage and/or heart rate based workouts up #’s 1 – 3 above, part way first but Week 5 does culminate with an entire course ride so you know exactly what you are getting into the following week!
This plan assumes you work M-F, 9-5 and can perform short structured workouts Tues/Wed/Thur but can ride longer on the weekends. You’ll build endurance and functional threshold power with Threshold, Sweet Spot, tempo workouts plus even be instructed how to ride the course (if you are local). Group rides, yoga, recovery routines & foundation work plus the all important recovery days and blocks. There’s even a power-based field test to enhance your power or heart rate based training if you are into that sorta thing. Stay consistent follow this plan and you’ll crush the Old Man Winter Rally!
