I have questions about proper training schedule standards.
I understand the importance of recovery and I've heard about doing a four week progression in training.
Gradually increasing the intensity and distance over a four week period and progressivly decreasing the intesity over the next four week period.
Can anyone suggest or identify this standard and how it relates to the following riding habits?
I ride about 100-125 mi. per week at an altitude of 5,000ft to10.600ft. Majority of the rides are 25-35mi. per ride and about 15-25% is climbing. Avg. speed is about varies from 15mph to 19mph depending on climbs.
I want to increase stamina and overall speed. Any suggestions?
