#hard work & dedication

Parte din abordarea serioasa pe care mi-o propun este planificarea cu cap a antrenamentului. Acum, n-am terminat niciun curs si nici n-am personal trainer, dar mare e gradina internetului, trebuie doar sa te interesezi si gasesti tot ce vrei.

Asa ca, am stabilit un program pe urmatoarele 10 saptamani, care se presupune ca mi-ar permite sa fiu in forma mea maxima la Transilvania Bike Trails Race, de la Viscri, un concurs foarte frumos, care anul trecut m-a pus la incercare si pe care vreau sa ma razbun anul asta. Vom vedea daca mi se si potriveste acest program, oricum, mai rau decat pregatirea haotica de pana acum, nu poate sa fie 🙂 .

Antrenamentul este structurat pe un mix de „power levels”, niveluri stabilite in functie de efortul pe care il depui la pedalare si de zona de puls in care ajungi. De la antrenament de baza, cu ritm redus, pana la nivelul maxim, de intensitate mare si durata redusa- vezi tabelul de mai jos pentru detalii.

Durata medie  este de ~8-10 ore/saptamana, impartite in sesiuni de 1-1.5 ore maxim. Pare realizabil, mai ales ca sunt o persoana matinala, n-am probleme cu orele „tinere”. Ma incurajeaza progresul de pana acum, din ce am salvat pe Strava, sunt la 6 ore/saptamana, durata medie. Cu putin efort, pot sa ajung la 10.

Pe langa cele de mai sus, o sa mai am si niste sesiuni axate pe tehnica (mai am de munca la strunit bolidul la vale, pentru ca pierd secunde pretioase, pe care le castig cu greu pe zonele de urcare) si inca doua componente: odihna/recuperare si o alimentatie corecta (mai rarut ca-i mai dragut cu shaormica 🙁 ).

Asa ca, #hardwork&dedication for the win!, sper sa reusesc sa ma tin de plan si sa obtin si rezultatele dorite.

Power Based Training Levels (Coggan Power Zones) By Andy R. Coggan, Ph.D.
Level Name Average Power Description
1 Active Recovery <55% „Easy spinning” or „light pedal pressure”, i.e., very low level exercise, too low in and of itself to induce significant physiological adaptations. Minimal sensation of leg effort/fatigue. Requires no concentration to maintain pace, and continuous conversation possible. Typically used for active recovery after strenuous training days (or races), between interval efforts, or for socializing.
2 Endurance 56-75% „All day” pace, or classic long slow distance (LSD) training. Sensation of leg effort/fatigue generally low, but may rise periodically to higher levels (e.g., when climbing). Concentration generally required to maintain effort only at highest end of range and/or during longer training sessions. Breathing is more regular than at level 1, but continuous conversation still possible. Frequent (daily) training sessions of moderate duration (e.g., 2 h) at level 2 possible (provided dietary carbohydrate intake is adequate), but complete recovery from very long workouts may take more than 24 hs.
3 Tempo 76-90% Typical intensity of fartlek workout, ‘spirited’ group ride, or briskly moving paceline. More frequent/greater sensation of leg effort/fatigue than at level 2. Requires concentration to maintain alone, especially at upper end of range, to prevent effort from falling back to level 2. Breathing deeper and more rhythmic than level 2, such that any conversation must be somewhat halting, but not as difficult as at level 4. Recovery from level 3 training sessions more difficult than after level 2 workouts, but consecutive days of level 3 training still possible if duration is not excessive and dietary carbohydrate intake is adequate.
4 Lactate Threshold 91-105% Just below to just above TT effort, taking into account duration, current fitness, environmental conditions, etc. Essentially continuous sensation of moderate or even greater leg effort/fatigue. Continuous conversation difficult at best, due to depth/frequency of breathing. Effort sufficiently high that sustained exercise at this level is mentally very taxing – therefore typically performed in training as multiple ‘repeats’, ‘modules’, or ‘blocks’ of 10-30 min duration. Consecutive days of training at level 4 possible, but such workouts generally only performed when sufficiently rested/recovered from prior training so as to be able to maintain intensity.
5 VOMax 106-120% Typical intensity of longer (3-8 min) intervals intended to increase VO2max. Strong to severe sensations of leg effort/fatigue, such that completion of more than 30-40 min total training time is difficult at best. Conversation not possible due to often ‘ragged’ breathing. Should generally be attempted only when adequately recovered from prior training – consecutive days of level 5 work not necessarily desirable even if possible. Note: At this level, the average heart rate may not be due to slowness of heart rate response and/or ceiling imposed by maximum heart rate)
6 Anaerobic Capacity >121% Short (30 s to 3 min), high intensity intervals designed to increase anaerobic capacity. Heart rate generally not useful as guide to intensity due to non-steady-state nature of effort. Severe sensation of leg effort/fatigue, and conversation impossible. Consecutive days of extended level 6 training usually not attempted.
7 Neuromuscular power N/A Very short, very high intensity efforts (e.g., jumps, standing starts, short sprints) that generally place greater stress on musculoskeletal rather than metabolic systems. Power useful as guide, but only in reference to prior similar efforts, not TT pace.
