I've read carmaichel's book and enjoyed it. On a conceptual level, it really helps out. What it doesn't have, is actual riding prescriptions. It says "here are the types of workouts, now go get a coach"
Is there a training book that tells me exactly what to do? All the "real" coaches out there must be getting their information from somewhere. Can i buy THAT book?
The problem with telling you exactly is that everyone is in a different physical state, has different goals, and has different abilities/capabilities.
I read the Carmichael book and came up with a plan for me based on his stuff. I modified it to accomodate my needs and it worked well. I hit the ground running this Spring in much better shape than normal, so while it may not have been perfect, it certainly worked.
