First Year Cat 5 - Can you provide some training tips?
I've been scouring the internet to find some decent training plans that are specifically tailored to track racing. I have found nothing.
Can you guys point me into the right direction to good resources on this topic? Or even better can you provide what your weekly training schedule is like?
I just joined up with a team, and this will be my first year racing, and first year on the track.
I purchased a entry level track bike running 49/15. I've only been on the track a few times to mess around and get a feel for my base level.
Currently I feel comfortable maintaining a 22 mph average (outdoors/solo) for about 10 laps (400m/lap). My max speed is at 33 mph. Obviously this is not great and i'm looking for ways to improve.
When you guys were once lowly Cat 5 riders, what kind of speeds were you looking at? I'm trying to be as mentally prepared as possible when the season starts in June.
