I’m finishing up the Fascat Gravel Plan and racing BWR on May 5. That’s an “A” race. After that I’m racing various events (road and gravel) for the next 5 weekends…mostly 3-6 hr hilly hard events. I’m 5a 0+ Masters so I gotta bake in some serious recovery between - but not “too much”. None of these are “A” races, I’m just trying to maintain the peak for 5-6 weeks as best as possible, perhaps even sharpening race fitness.
I’m thinking of structuring my midweek rides between these races as follows:
- Rest day after each event
- 1.5-2hr interval ride 2 days/week (what intervals are best? V02, Criss Crosss, Supra Threshold?) Any or all? Mix and match? FTP Intervals?
- 1 day of ~2hrs of Zone 2
- Another rest day
- Openers day before each race - Fascat standard Opener workout
I guess I’m asking is there a race/peak fitness “Maintenance Plan” that one can employ for a 4-6 week period?
Thanks for any direction you may have!
