    Honestly, I'd say to get on the plan and see how it goes. I think that whatever result comes of it won't hit home as much if you read about it in a forum vs. experiencing it. None of this matters in the long term for your racing career. Make sure you have a consistent means of testing and setting zones so you can adjust your targets for each block.

    Agreed it's too much. When is your next race and what kind of race is it? If you told me you had a race in that block I would change a whole bunch of it. No high intensity short duration stuff either. I would also add a rest week after three.

    ^^ 2nd or 3rd that.

    Substituting sweet spot (87-93%) intervals instead of 90 or 100 mins at 90% would be better inserted there. Don't under estimate how hard it is to do 2x20 at 95% or 100% for two consecutive days. You may have a hard time with that. One thing I have learned over the years is how important recovery is! People think if they don't train hard they won't get faster, but the goal is to attack your "work" sessions fully prepared and not to fatigued. 3 days of threshold work with 4 days of active recovery and Zone 2 riding will help you see improvements. You do not want to fall into fatigue and become overtrained because then you watch all the hard work you thought you were doing go away as you recover to get back to normal.

    Also interested in what your goals are.
