Having completed this event a number of years previously I am fully aware of what is needed to complete this tough sportive.
This plan has been created to focus on specific sessions that will target the fitness demands needed. It allows for a longer weekend club ride so you can still ride with your mates and there are midweek turbo trainer sessions. This plan is not designed to be easy however based around your custom training zones so that you will be training within your own capabilities. You will arrive at the start line knowing you have done the work!
WHEN DOES IT START?
The start date for this Mallorca 225 12 week training plan is the 5th Feb 2024 and will take you right up to the start line on Saturday 27th April 2024. I have also entered the event so feel free to get in touch directly with me if you need anything or just for a shout out on the day! email@example.com
HOW MANY HOURS PER WEEK?
This plan is not for the faint-hearted and you would want to be starting this from a good level of fitness. It has been built around 8-10 hours of training per week. If this sounds too much then look at one of the other Mallorca plans to match your training time available. The plan consists of turbo sessions during the week using Power which are between 1-1.5 hours in length. There are also longer rides that have been scheduled for the weekends which can be completed using power or heart rate so you will be able to still ride with your club mates. This can be rearranged to suit your work/family schedule.
The power sessions are all totally compatible (export/sync required) with Zwift, TrainerRoad and Smart trainers with ERG mode.

WHY DOWNLOAD A TRAINING PLAN FROM RIDE HARDER?
There are so many training plans out there but they all only just include the training sessions. In my experience, this is not just what people need. For me, people need to understand why they are doing what they have been “told” to do. This is fundamental in sticking to the plan and making a real change for life not just a couple of weeks. Every workout states the purpose of the session and the training ability they will be working. Along with this, there will also be plenty of things to watch, tips, tricks and advice throughout the plan to help you meet the objective of the plan. Lastly, I have included personal development and wellness advice to make it easier to stick to the plan and live a healthier, happier you.
