  2006 Training Plan

The first thing to do when working out a training plan is to schedule Races and any family commitments. In my case, RAAM is the biggie, but I'd like to complete the DC Randonneurs Brevet Series. These rides are timed, but are not races. They are ridden without a support vehicle and with strict time limits for the control points along the way. The 200km ride (127 miles) must be completed in 13.5 hours. The 300km (189 miles) must be completed in 20 hours. The 400km (249 miles) must be completed in 27 hours. The 600km (373 miles) must be completed in 40 hours. Arrive at a control point after it has closed and its, "Better luck next year." The other event on my calender is the Bike Sebring 24 Hour Time Trial in February.

Once, these events are on the schedule, its time to arrange the training cycles. Every cycle is 3 weeks and is followed by a recovery week. A training cycle will work on something specific (ie. Climbing, speedwork, etc). The earlier weeks will have more aerobic riding to rebuild my base. This year I'm going to add more strength training to my routine along with Compex workouts. I added the Compex Unit late in this year and mostly used it for recovery, but the few strength workouts I did use it for were really intense.

As soon as I get the specific workouts planned, I'll post the training plan online.

I've gone through kidney failure twice. The first time in 2000, my mother donated a kidney; and again in 2008, I'm on dialysis waiting for a breakthrough in immuno-suppression medicines before seeking a new kidney.
