I’m planning out next season and after listening to a few podcasts wanted some feedback on timing. Haven’t had a chance to listen to the switching from base to race podcast. Some background: live in NorCal and plan to start racing masters 55+ around the first week of March 2021. Currently have the following on my TP calendar:
- 10 week weight lifting for cycling starting Monday July 6 2020 thru Sunday Sept 13th
- 18 weeks of sweet spot starting Monday Sept 14 2020 thru Sunday Jan 17th
- 6 weeks of intervals starting Monday Jan 18 2021 thru Sunday Feb 28th
That has me finishing the road racing intervals by the first week of March. Have only been riding for 4 years, the timing of that progression seems right to my eye based on what I learned in Friel’s book.
