Are you looking to ride the Spaghetti 100 or any other even at the 2013 Spaghetti 100? Consider taking your training up a notch this year and add some structured interval work into your routine. Do you only have 3-4 days a week to ride? Perfect! Here is a great example for you:
Tuesday- 4×8 minute Threshold intervals 5 minutes RBI
Thursday- 4×8 minute Threshold intervals 5 minutes RBI
Saturday- Endurance Ride: 2-6 hours (dependent upon fitness and expected finishing time)
Sunday- Endurance Ride: 1-3 Hour (dependent upon fitness)
RBI- Rest Between Intervals
PE- Perceived Exertion
Threshold Intervals- (PE:8/10) Designed to work just below lactate threshold. The body is able to accumulate a large amount of time at this intensity but keep the time to recovery minimal.
Endurance Ride (PE:4-6/10)- Designed to build aerobic base, increase mitochondrial (power plant) density of the muscle cell and allow athletes to focus on training for their nutritional requirements. Intensity varies to take into consideration the possible time variation of Endurance Rides.
