from cyclocrosser, Erik:
Question for you on your training plans, and the longer cyclocross program in particular. I am fairly unstructured with my riding, I just like to ride pretty often at a pretty high intensity. What kind of flexibility do the plans offer? I tend to throw in some short track races, rides with my teenager, hard efforts up flagstaff or betasso, ideally I would like to incorporate the program materials into my normal rides and be able to mix/match. Also, I mix riding between my road, cross and mountain bike, I only have power on my road bike, how feasible is it to do the rides if I don’t have a power meter that particular day? (I always have HR though).
