Hey guys, I’m finalizing the timing of my training plans (10 week resistance, 18 weeks SS, 6 weeks intervals).
What kind of experience have racers had with a few early season races (late March-mid May) while still in the Sweet Spot phase? Obviously I won’t be fine tuned. I’m a Midwest Cat 3, I’d think the SS, Criss-cross, and Over-Under rides would still produce good fitness (and maybe upgrade points).
Will this turn me into the group ride hero? My main target races are Tulsa Tough, mid June, and another weekend July 10-12. I don’t want to peak too early.
I know I won’t be on peak form, but if most other guys aren’t either it just comes down to who’s fitter right? I wouldn’t sacrifice any training volume, but am still hungry for a few results before the meat of the summer rolls around.
