I have a Plan

Yes, yes, I do.  I have a plan for the remainder of this month and through the first full week of March.  I really haven't had anything written down and I've just been doing zone 4 (threshold) rides every other day.  Mainly on the trainer due to weather or not having time after work.

This evening, I was supposed to do another zone 4 interval set, but my mind just was not into it this evening.  I even got dressed but just did not feel like doing them.  Frustrated really.  Frustrated because I honestly didn't really know what to do.  I had no real plan.  I thrive on structure, especially in cycling, and I NEEDED to know what I was going to be doing in preparation for AoMM.  I have the makings of a plan for part of that.

Once I get to March, I will go back to my 2009 Google Calendar and do the workouts I posted for all of March & April.  Hopefully, those along with a few mountain training rides, I will be ready come May 16, 2011.

I have a solid 3 weeks of intervals, a recovery week and I will do my FTP test on March 18.  Will be interesting to see what I get during an actual test - see if I'm close to what I have been using.  I hope so.  Even if I come out and the test results are indicative of a lower FTP, I'm going to continue using what I have used for the 3 weeks on.  I might even bump it up, if I can do those wattages....

Damn.  I do feel better after spending the last hour or so figuring out the training plan.  The next 3 days will be intervals, tempo, recovery and then it starts!!!  Yay!! :)
