First of all, I just wanted to say that I’ve been a loyal Sufferlandrian for about 4 years now, and I just completed my first Tour of Sufferlandria! I’m eager to focus on training this year, and this is the first time I’ll do any structured training. Got myself signed up for the Triple Bypass ride in Colorado which is about 20 weeks away, and it’ll go over 110 miles with 10,500 ft of climbing.
I wonder which training plans folks would considered for this target event. It doesn’t quite fit the described goals of any pre-constructed training plan, although it seems like the 12 week Hilly Gran Fondo plan fits the closest. In any case, with 20 weeks to go, I want to begin training already anyway.
If any other Sufferlandrians out there also have their sights set on the Triple Bypass, it’ll be fun to compare training notes! FWIW, my 4DP test results from last month are 13.74 | 6.28 | 3.81 | 3.16 W/kg
