New! Training Plans

Postby Alex Simmons/RST » Sat Feb 28, 2009 7:06 am

Warning - blatant plug follows. Hopefully you don't mind as it is specific to forum topic!
With permission from forum owner.


OK, after getting some great feedback* from lots of you from this forum, we at RST have been working away to the wee hours on a solution to provide Training Plans.

RST Cyclist Training Plans are a suitable for all riders who want to maximise their training time on a limited budget, or perhaps want to trial what it's like to follow a sound training plan, without commiting to a full coaching relationship.

They are now ready!

Introductory offer:
13-week plans (AT) $11.50 per week.

To find out more, click on one of the RST ads you can see from any of this forum's directory pages and you'll be directed to a site that explains all the details. For example, this page listing cycling clubs:

If anyone has tried to send me an email from the web page link provided and I haven't responded, my apologies.

There was an error in the mailto: email address, which is fixed now. :oops:

Weird, I fixed it yesterday as well.

Anyway, the link can be obtained by clicking on the RST ad on any of the forum directory pages, such as this one:

Yes sogood, I have decided to eat the plan on paper and see if I can get any gains, instead of actually doing the hard work like a sucker. :lol: :lol:

Oh my, I'll have to subscribe to Alex's paper too to replace those horror tasting goos.

OK, so I left out "of the pudding" from this common phrase.

I may have to resort to that when I get desperate. Never discount the effect of placebo while buddists eat incense ash to make them invincible. 8)

Yes, as Deanj and one or two others discovered, there was a typo in my email address on the site :oops: which was corrected.

Just thought I would give an update on my plan.

It's going great, just starting week 8.

Won my first crit on the weekend with my average HR what I normally can sustain for 100km, so I think I will be upgraded next race, maybe even I shot at winning B grade?? :twisted:
Sat on the front for half a lap then sprinted from a fair bit out, (about 2-300m) and hit a PB sprint speed of 63km on the flat.
Is a great testament to Alex's training plans. Having only been cycling for 3-4months with training in the last 8 weeks by Alex's plan.

Good stuff!

How much training are you getting in? I'd love to have a crack at this but am worried I'm simply not getting enough km in. With commitments, uni and seeing the Mrs as we tend to be ships in the night I'm having a hard time getting out on the bike for long periods. I'm on the trainer now a few times a week and trying to get in a good ride or two with climbs where possible on the weekends. So about 5-7 hours per week roughly.

Excellent!

You can do well with 5-7 hours per week, just need to use them wisely.

63km sprint on the flat!!! :shock:

How much of that could be attributable to the recent training? What was your previous top speed in similar condition?
