Base Period Update

This was the first week of an 8 week Base Training period. It included 10 hours of training – 4 in the gym lifting weights, and 6 on the bike with Zone 2 efforts.

This is the start of a 5 month cycle in preparation for the first of 3 century rides I have planned for 2020. This time of year, I spend more time in the gym building strength, and less time on the bike building a solid base, or foundation, for harder, longer rides.

Since returning from Camp PedalWORKS in September, I have made considerable strength gains in the gym resulting in easier, faster climbs, and a number of PR’s on local Strava hill segments. This Base period lasts until Christmas where I will focus on strength training, and long, slow rides.
