Turbo Training 2016/2017
As per last few winters I’m putting on turbo training classes to help with quality training over the winter months to compliment base training and prepare riders for the time trial /race season. Sessions will start on Thursday 3rd November and run through to the end of March.
Training will be held at Brockenhurst Village Hall in Highwood Road (SO42 7RY). The sessions will be in the Craft Room and it will be easiest to park at the rear of the hall and use the back door to the Craft Room. Doors open at 1930, warm up will start at 1945. The duration of the sessions will vary but will normally be around 75 -90 minutes including warm up and cool down. Please don’t arrive early as there’s another class finishing at 1900 so we want to make sure that they’re clear.
The sessions will be run along the lines of training within certain training zones to increase lactate threshold / functional threshold power. The result of this structured training should result in you being able to hold a higher effort level for longer come the race season. The sessions are planned and delivered by a British Cycling Certified Level 3 coach. The training will be split into blocks to reflect the needs of the training year:
See http://nfcc-training.blogspot.co.uk/…/lactate-threshold-hea… for more details.
The coach will recommend other sessions for riders to do to complement the Thursday sessions and distribute those to riders via Training Peaks software. For the most part that will mean that riders can repeat the Thursday session at home on Mondays.
This will also be the case for the 10th November and 19th January where the hall is unavailable.
Please sign up for a Training Peaks account https://home.trainingpeaks.com . The basic one will suffice unless you want the specific features of the chargeable version. Follow the following link to link your account with the coaches account:
If you’ve got a heart rate monitor please wear it, if not don’t worry as advice will be given based on the Perceived Rate of Exertion scale which requires no equipment. If you’re training with power the sessions will also be delivered in terms of power zones as well as heart rate zones.
Please remember that we are hiring the village hall and there are a few house rules we need to adhere by:
Checklist of what to bring:
Cost of each session is £5 for members of New Forest Cycling Club or Lymington Triathlon Club. Cost for non-members and guests £6.
It may seem a bit early to be talking about cyclocross but, to quote the organiser of the first race “it is only 32 sleeps to the first race of the season!” The New Forest Cycling Club is now affiliated to the Wessex Cyclocross League for the 2019/2020 season. This means that NFCC riders will […]
Ray Claridge won last night’s TT with a 36:04, a very good time that would likely have had his 3 minute man and second placed rider Stuart Peckham just in sight on the last rise to the finish. The evening had an unhelpful wind direction, but was warm and at least rain free. A further […]
