I have been commuting for a while now, and have over 1000 base miles. I want to join a cycling team next summer, and I've developed a training program based on some information I found on the 'net to improve my riding. I'll be doing 3 weeks of training followed by 1 week of rest (rest both on and off the bike). Here is what my training week looks like:
[ Mon ] 40 - 60 km interval ride
[ Tue ] 40 - 60 km ride at zone 4 OR interval ride
[ Wed ] Long, slow recovery ride: 40+ km at zone 1 or 2
[ Thu ] 40 - 60 km ride at zone 4
[ Fri ] 25 - 35 km recovery ride at zone 1 or 2 OR rest day
[ Sat ] 75-100km ride at zone 3
[ Sun ] 20 - 30 km recovery ride at zone 1 OR rest
By the time winter arrives, I will alternate between stationary biking, cold-weather riding when conditions are acceptable, and gym sessions.
Considering I am not training for any particular event or skill (i.e. climbing), does this seem like a reasonable program? Am I going about this all wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
