I posted this question in the RR forum before and it withered and died so I thought I'd try again here.
A few weeks ago I was sitting down with my new team (Team CKT) and we were talking about setting A, B and C races for 2009 and how to train for them (I was also explaining the concept of A, B and C races and how you can't peak for all of them to some present ).
Here's the problem. I've used 6 week cycles since...uh...forever. I know how to initiate a peak (for me), where it falls in my 6 week cycle and how I taper. My team mates that have any structured training are doing 5 or 4 week cycles. I don't know what to do with that. I can guess but I don't think that is good enough.
1. How many weeks is 1 training cycle for you?
2. When you initiate a peak where does it fall within that cycle?
3. Describe your taper.
4. Anything else that seems relevant.
5. Why does it burn when I pee?
Thanks in advance and numbers are welcome.
