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:

After a week of no club activity (well nobody sent anything) there was apparently a historic local two day event on, with 5 NFCC riders spotted on the start list. Gerry Read has some photos on the gallery pages, so it must be true! Reports anticipated… Wessex Cyclocross League round 4 at Standlake Arena, Witney […]
Update from last week – Peter Weaver made another attempt on the 71 year old’s 25 mile record, his previous attempt thwarted by the event being cancelled! He rode the Southdown Velo event in 1.12.38 and claims the age related record. Further to last week’s cyclo-cross opener, event registration is with Poole Wheelers (the event […]
