I am currently at week2 day3 of your “category1 base training base plan”, and it’s going well. I intend to follow it with “cat1 cross country mountain bike build peak and race”,starting from 27 january so I can be ready for my priority races in mid april. I started the base plan a bit early so i have a week free, just in case something come up (flu or race be moved or whatever). I also have my day#1 on Wednesdays.
Now my question is:
-Tomorrow (week2 day4-spin ups) I have a work thing and don’t know if I will be able to train, should I skip it or move it to the next day? I really want to follow your plan at my best.

I recommend including the main-set (10 X 30 second spin-ups to max cadence of 110 – 120 rpm in smallest gear available with 2 minute easy spin recoveries) of the spin-up session into your week 2 day 6 warm-up. Miss out the rest of the week 2 day 4 ride time and don’t extend the week 2 day 6 ride time. Simply move the main-set and miss everything else out to keep the quality in and make room for your extra commitments this week.

thank you for your reply.
Another question for you:
Monday will be “WEEK 3 day6 4hour mtb advanced skills” (cat1 Base) but the weather is going to be awful that day. What do you think if I swap day5 (endurance spinning and core training) with day 6? so I have: day 6 (mtb), day 5 (endurance+core), day 7 (big gear climbs).
I really don’t want to miss the 4 hours mtb ride, and don’t want to cut it short on the trainer.

That switch fits nicely. Better to get outside on your long ride when you can, than do it on the trainer.

a question about “week5 day6 40′ tempo”, is it on a flat road or climbing?

Flat is best but climbing works too if you only have hilly terrain available.

Hope you are doing fine. I had to skip training on days 1,2,3,4 of week6, because of a fever. So my last training was hilly ride week5day7. I think my body is well enough to restart training tomorrow. Where I should pick up my training from?

Finish off week 6 with short (< 60 min) easy (zone 1-2) recovery rides and your core strength training. Get back on plan as-is on week 7 day if you are still 100% healthy.Coach Lynda

I am currently at week 9 of “category1 base training base plan”, unfortunately I had to skip several training bike days this week because of extra work shifts and terrible weather. I barely made up 40min tempo on rollers. Feel like I have my recovery week 8 stretched for 2 weeks. My main race is on 5 april. I intend to follow with build peak and race plan. What do you suggest for next week (23-29 december): should I start again with week 9 or go with weeek 10? Thanks!!

Continue on with week 10. Keep looking forward and don’t make up any missed sessions.
