Well Ive got a little bit of a deliema, I want to race almost every weekend this season, most times 2 or 3 times a weekend.
Problem with this is, If i race on the weekend, I can only train hard Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Making thursday recovery, and friday prep for saturday.
Now the weekends I take a week off i double up on training, and train all week hard.
Example of a race week:
Monday: intervals 2-3 hours
Tuesday: fast crit ride, 27mph avg (1 hour)
Wednesday: Endurance 3-4 hours on bike
Thursday: recovers 1 hour
Friday: race prep 1.5 hours some sprinting some hill
Sunday race: then the next week will start with a recovery.
I'm doing like a 3 days, then rest, then 3 days.
I'm curious if I will get any stronger doing this, Im worried about never getting stronger than my competition just staying just as strong as them, If this happens how do I win?
Any advice on how to become faster while racing every weekend?
Will this training schedule put me ahead of most Cat 4s, by mid season?
