Our Six Week Tour of the Gila Training Plan begins March 5th! Our plan will sharpen your legs with gobs of sweet spot, time trial intervals an climbing threshold intervals. The Gila is legendary for its big climbs and decisive time trial so this plan prepares you specifically to climb and TT like a cheetah!
Whether or not your category gets to go up the famous Mogollon and Gila Monster climb, you’ve still got plenty of elevation to be gained in this race. This plan incorporates plenty of Sweet Spot work to get you ready for those long grinds in & out of Silver City. The Time Trial is notoriously hilly and windy so we’ve included tips on “turtling” in your TT training rides so when you’re redlining in on the Tyrone TT, staying tucked is pure muscle memory.
There’s also plenty of punchy VO2 and even Tabata work to prep you for the Downtown Silver City Criterium with its punchy climbs.
This plan builds over 4 weeks, then tapers into the race. You’ll start the plan with a 20-minute field test and the FasCat Training Zones worksheet to set your wattage and heart rate zones so you can train at just the right intensity in each workout. And we’ve included the small details like rest days, race-day Openers, strength & conditioning, stretching and Yoga videos to obtain those marginal gains that make the difference between surviving and racing the Gila!
