That book drove me nuts with all the charts, schedules, etc. I ended up paying more attention to "Younger Next Year" for general info and gave myself general guidelines for cycling. On a weekly basis these include one TT of 15 mi., one longer ride of 40 mi., a goal of 100 mi./wk and the overarching goal of having fun and enjoying the countryside.
