here it is in a nutshell, this is actually my 3rd year racing , i was in awesome shape end of season 07. met my goals and was looking to build on the form through the winter. for 3 months i rode 2hrs a weeek because some family things needed attention i had no choice. then due to weather disasters, my job , and home repairs , and something always happening to interefere were its almost laughable its so ironic , i havent been able to ride since but maybe most is 5 hrs a week. i was for a while getting up at 4 a.m. and doing 2 hrs a day on the trainer. i am going to go back to that because i know i am here to do that if nothing for base miles. . i am used to getting about 15+ in a week. i have a weekend of crits coming up in a month that is pretty big on my schedule. i figure if i do 2 hrs in the a.m. and ride in the evenings and plan on using that time and the weekend for crit simulation training , sprints intervals etc i should be ok . i figure any rides over 1 hr should be just endurance rides not race pace like i am used to. i figure i need to focus my time to accomplish my desired form for crits. since crits are under an hour i figure i can really focus on those needs, can this be done? any tips any pointers? i plan on ditching the group training rides on the weekend to do my own thing and take care of prioritys.
here is what i am thinking :
mon. 2hrs am 1 hr pm sprints fast pace ride crit simulate efforts
tues. 2hrs a.m. 1 hr p.m. crit race training
wends 2 hrs a.m. 1 hr p.m. endurance ride med pace.
thurs. 2 hrs a.m. 2 hrs p.m. intervals sprints crit sinulate efforts
sat 3 hrs hill climbing sprints sprints + endurance paced recovery
sun 2 hrs easy spin some sprints recovery ride
