Mountainous prep training plan
You have a hilly road event coming up, this plan is here to help you.
Can be up to 6 months, but make sure you have smaller goals leading up to your A event
Benchmarks for success
The benchmark for success will be your 20 min power, it's all about that endurance!
Areas of focus
This is an endurance/threshold base plan where you'll develop the ability to hold a strong pace for a prolonged period of time. While building on your ability to repeat this effort with fatigue in your legs.
Level of commitment
This is going to be dependent on distance of your event, but typically it can last 3 to 7 hours. Therefore you should aim for a minimum of 5 hours per week. Remember, prior to the event you want to have at least ridden 80% of the race distance 1-3 times prior to the event day.
