It’s pretty straightforward to find a cycling training programme on t’internet.
(You might have heard of this thing called ‘Google’?)
The thing is, whilst they’re helpful to a point, these training plans are generally designed to apply (and appeal) to a broad swathe of the Googling public. And they all seem to be 12 weeks long (I know, I generalise… some are 16 weeks long…).
Pick from ‘Beginner’, ‘Improver’ or ‘Expert’ and follow the programme (or not, as the case may be). I’m sure progress will follow.
But there’s a better way. A way of building your own training programme. One that lasts longer than 12 weeks.
Let’s talk periodisation.
And let’s try not to fall asleep.
