Actually it's not. I am already on my 2nd week of base 2 training. I have already done 6 weeks of prep work and four weeks of base 1. It is never too early.
Right now you should be spending the majority of your time in heart rate zones 1 and 2 and just putting time in. Mileage isn't that important. This is also the time to be doing gym work.
Here is my schedule for this week.
Sunday - Two hours on the road bike, at least half of the time in heart rate zone 2.
Monday - Gym for 1.5 hours in the morning. Then 45 minutes of power intervals on the trainer in the evening.
Tuesday - Rest day!
Wednesday - Gym for 1.5 hours in the morning. Then 30 minutes of easy spinning on rollers in the evening.
Thursday - One hour of tempo intervals. On road or trainer. Do 4-5 x 6 minutes in the 3 zone (2 minute recoveries).
Friday - Rest day!
Saturday - Ride on rolling course two hours. Big chain ring. Most of ride time in heart rate zone2-3. Seated on most hills.
Sunday - Ride on a flat to gently rolling course two hours. Get at least 50% of ride time in 2 zone. Avoid 3-5 zones.
I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
