Brutal honest review
Today the 18 Week SS training completed.
Luckily, I purchased the SS 18-week plan from Fascat.
Beforehand I was cycling every day with no plan no idea what I was doing.
Am I going to be professional (HAHA) NO! Did I achieve my goal? Cannot prove it as my A cycle day was canceled due to Covid19. (www.wicklow200.ie)
Did I know what to expect, what I need to do on my starting day? “ABSOLUTELY” NOT.
But I learn that with very hard work though, there is another way to upgrade my fitness for an endurance event.
After the initial communication with Fascat I was recommended to purchase the sweet spot training . I did. What am I’m doing?
Oh yes, I have now a plan, and now what? I started with very low expectations as I never used a program before. And my learning days started
What am I learning? Cycling? Yes. But so much more involved.
CTL, ATL, TSB, Rest days, Food, Calories, I could carry on.
It involves learning to focus concentrate on my efforts learn to remain dedicated, with some easier days and harder weekend rides, understanding the meanings of paces, zones, heart-rate efforts ect…
Did I purchase a cycling plan? “YES” – “BUT” It is not only a plan. Is a new way of life for me. That what I purchase and I know it now.
So much to learn all because of 1 plan I purchased!
As you see the cycling part is only the 1st part of the “saga”, the rest is an amazing new world if you are enthusiastic and of course if you wish to learn about it.
All this changed the meaning of my cycling? “ABSOLUTELY”, YES.
The plan provided me some very good days and very hard days. Even viewing a professional race now I understand it better than ever before.
Are the numbers important for that matter? NOT for this review. As all this is about me how do I feel, and what I achieved by completing this plan. That what is important for me.
All thanks, to the plan and the coaches from FASCAT. The motivation they provided is second to none, fast responses, and great advice.
The forum also has a great contribution to my success, and for that i thank you all.
I changed physically and mentally my attitude has been transformed about a structured plan, also I would recommend to anyone from a beginner to a professional to follow a well-designed plan.
That it for now until my next plan
