    Training and racing...

    Hello guys, can you give me some example of a training plan because I have my own, but in next 5 weeks every Sunday I'll have a race B category. So, I don't know how to be well rested for Sundays race, and don't miss anything in the training? Thank you in advance

    Depends which book you're working from. My reading of Frield addresses several 'C' races in a row and several 'A' races in a row, but not a bunch of 'B' races.

    So make up your mind - either do a peak cycle and some race weeks, pretty much as written, or stick with whatever cycle you're in now and do them as workouts.

    FWIW, I don't notice a ton of difference in my performance resulting in things happening more than, say, four days out. But then I've been hacking away in Sport for a few years - being able to read a book is different from being able to build and follow a good plan, and that's different from being able to find one's way to the podium.

    If you're using a packaged plan, you've just found one of their limitations.
