Dear SUF community,
I am new to Sufferfest and I would like to know which training plan would be most suitable for a track(e.g. velodrome) cyclists or for a amateur cyclists looking to get into track cycling?
Due to the nature of track cycling I believe the following plans could be appropriate:
- All-purpose road
- Time Trial
- Fitness kickstarter
- In season criterium (if I intend to go to the track at weekends)
Each one appears to have its merits and I am not sure which one I should chose. In the meantime, I have chosen the 3 week building block plan (MAP) focusing on my weakness identified from the 4DP test (omg that is hard!).
My results from the 4DP identified me as an attacker with an FTP of 208 watt. I believe I need to raise my FTP to close to 250 watts in order to enjoy my time at the track (Easier said than done… But you need to aim high ).
Any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated.
PS: never done structured training before and this is my first time with a power meter.
