Now that I'm back with power, I need to make sure I put it to good use. I've been doing a lot of reading over the past few weeks and feel as though pure block training is the way to go. Since I have a flexible work schedule, I think a program of 3 on and 2 off will work great.
Instead of reinventing the wheel and possibly developing a plan that doesn't make sense for what I'm trying to accomplish, I decided to go straight to the power guru - Hunter Allen. As you aware, Hunter co-authored the book - Training and Racing with a Power Meter with Dr. Andy Coggan and the book is considered the ultimate guide to training with a power meter. Hunter is working on a pure block training program that will focus the majority of my time over the next 12 - 16 weeks in the range of Tempo/SST/TH. As the racing season approaches, he will alter the plan to add VO2 work as well as L6 and L7.
I plan to start the new plan on November 1st so stay tuned for some updates!
