This plan will prepare you for 105 miles of true grit! The Rouge Roubaix race course covers constantly rolling terrain and a few climbs and mixed road surfaces that will test your handling as well as your legs and lungs! To get you ready for this unyielding race, your mid-week training will consist of VO2’s, anaerobic work and the creme de la crème, Tabata Intervals! You’ll also stay sharp with Sweet Spot, Threshold, and Tempo intervals, to maintain and build a powerful aerobic engine.
Choose between a basic, intermediate or advanced plan (see our FAQ below for more details) specific to how much time you have to train each week, your age and your ability level.
Every weekend you’ll go long because 105 miles of true grit ain’t gonna ride itself! Thus the Sweet Spot Group Ride that starts gradually at 2.5 hours in week 2 but progresses to a whopping race specific 5.5 hours by week 6.
And to ensure that you’re training at the proper efforts, we’ve included the FasCat Wattage and Heart Rate Zones Sheet with the 20min Field Test rides that you’ll do at the start and end of this plan so you can measure your improvement and keep your training zones accurate!
Additionally, this 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. You’ll perform structured interval work during the week with the option to join group rides on the weekends which makes this plan great for days when it’s too dark or cold to ride outside before or after work!
