I’m trying to figure out a general outline of how my training plan should look for 2022. Up to this point I’ve done:
- 32-week offseason plan
- Sweet Spot 4
- Fondo plan (almost complete)
Side Note: The plans have been amazing, I’ve seen gains from 3.1 w/kg to 3.6 w/kg currently!
Since I don’t have a racing background and this year is the first year I entered an event (fondo in 2 weeks), I don’t really have a good feel for building out my “yearly training schedule”. I have no problem #ftfp once I have the plan it’s just the scheduling aspect.
What I mean by this is, so in 2 weeks I’ll be done with the fondo plan after my event. I’ll then have nothing until I plan on starting the 32-week offseason plan maybe in late October.
My main question is what to do with the ~2.5 months between when I finish the fondo plan and start off season plan? If someone only has one event, what do they do the rest of the summer.
Also, does anyone ever take a week off the bike completely? I’ve thought about taking a week off after the fondo then jumping back into other plans just not sure what.
Basically, I just don’t want to lose fitness and gaining more would be great. I love the plans and would have no problem filling my calendar just looking for a little guidance. Thanks!
