Do I need a time trial bike?2018-09-07T22:43:43+00:00

It is not essential however if you plan to succeed in Time Trials then they are beneficial however just putting clip on bars on your road bike is a great inexpensive way of getting started.

Can this plan be used just to improve my cycling?2018-09-07T22:43:20+00:00

Yes it is guaranteed that using a structured training plan will improve your fitness. As we go through the training plan your functional threshold power (FTP) will definitely increase and therefore when you do a TT you will be able to work harder for the distance you are completing.

Do I have to have done a Time Trial?2018-09-07T22:42:51+00:00

No, not all. This plan will suit even total beginners who wish to complete their first TT next year so will have all the skills and knowledge to smash their first race.

Can this be used for other distances?2018-09-07T22:42:24+00:00

Yes, although this is based around 25mile the base/build phase will have a great benefit to all of your cycling distances. Its only towards the end of the plan that the sessions will target the specific distance but even then it does not mean you only have to race 25miles and nothing else.

Can I change the days of sessions?2018-09-07T22:41:59+00:00

The sessions are designed to be done in the order that they are set to meet the training adaptations that we are trying to achieve however you are welcome to move the sessions to suit your own work/life as long as they are in the same format and order as prescribed.

What if I miss a session?2018-09-07T22:41:35+00:00

We all know that things crop up in our day to day life so missing just the odd session will be fine. The plan is taking a long term approach to training so missing a session is less important than if your were embarking on a short term plan.

Can I train for triathlon while completing this plan?2018-09-07T22:41:10+00:00

Yes you can and this will be fine through the early part of the plan although when the intensity increases you may just want to stick to the main core workouts each week and miss some of the extra sessions depending on your time available.

Can I cancel my subscription?2018-09-07T22:40:44+00:00

Yes, you are free to cancel at any time and end the plan if you feel it is not for you. But before doing so talk to me as we may be able to make the plan more flexible to meet your needs.

Do I have to complete the whole plan?2018-09-07T22:40:13+00:00

It’s your choice, but the plan is designed to guide you through a full periodization cycle. From building your base fitness through to racing.

When will the plan start?2018-09-07T22:39:14+00:00

The start date is the 08/10/18
