Episode 37: Mid-Season Planning & Training Volume

Episode 37: Mid-Season Planning & Training Volume

We’re halfway through 2020 and you’ve likely been training solidly for many months and reached a high level of fitness. Now it’s time for a break to recharge before you tackle the second half of 2020. Even without any events this year, it’s critical to take a short mid-season break if you want to have any legs, or motivation, left by the end of summer and fall riding season.

This week we discuss taking that mid-season break and then planning your second-half fitness rebuilding process. Learn how long we suggest mid-season breaks to be and how we structure our build back to higher levels of fitness for a late-season peak: determine your target events, work backwards from there to fit in your aerobic base, aerobic threshold and high-intensity training blocks over the shorter time frame you’re working with through the summer months.

We also discuss training volume in detail. What is volume? How much is enough? How much is too much? And how to determine how much volume might work best for you. We share our insights and experiences as athletes and coaches to help you learn how to determine your volume loading progressions. Lastly, we discuss the volume design on our special for 2020, Season Salvation Training Plan while providing directions on how you can adjust the volume within the plan (or any of our training plans) to meet your goals.

Join us for our newest training plan: 2020 Season Salvation! 

Begin with us June 15th, or whenever you’re ready after that, to re-build your fitness for the second half of 2020. We’ll be podcasting our way through a 12-week building of fitness for a (hopeful) late-summer/fall racing season. Train right along with us and learn how we do things to reach a second peak of fitness for the year.


We finish things off by offering our listeners a 50% discount on the 2020 Season Salvation Plan, bringing the cost down to just $48 for the 12-weeks of training, podcasting instruction & insights, motivation, accountability and, if nothing else, enjoyment on the bike through the entire summer… all for just $4 a week… less than a premium coffee!
