After finishing my first full season of racing TT, I’ve just had a break from structured training for a few weeks and now I’m looking forward to next year. I found that I prefer the longer events, 10 miles are a young man’s game! With that in mind I’ve set my goals for next year , firstly to go under 4hours for a 100m TT (just missed it this year, if only I hadn’t stopped for a pee) and to complete a 12hour TT.
I’m just wondering which training plan would be best for these two goals. I did SSB, Sustained Power Build and a good chunk of the 40k TT plan, I switched a few workouts during speciality due to racing most weekends, but that path wouldn’t necessarily give me the endurance I’d need for those two events.
At the moment my plan, as I have a lot of time, is to work through Traditional Base, SSB (but swap the shorter SS intervals for 2 or 3 x 20 mins), Sustained Power Build (again swapping shorter intervals for longer ones) and then I’m a bit stuck. Reason I’m asking now is because I’m trying to lay out a plan on the Calender. I can usually manage two long outdoor rides per week, one midweek, one on Sundays.
Any experiences or suggestions very much appreciated.
