10. Weekly Build Up of Training Within 4 Week Period

Within each four-week period the training workload is spread according to the following illustration:

Cycling Time Trials Weekly Training Phases
There is a steady progression in workload followed by a week of reduced effort. This allows the body to adapt. If too much is attempted, too soon, the body cannot adapt and will begin to weaken and break down.

Between October and April each four-week period is gradually increased in intensity from the preceding four-week period, following a similar pattern.

If you are starting the programme later than mid October and you have a reasonable level of fitness carried over from the previous season, you may need to omit the fourth week of the first two or three four weekly cycles (Aerobic Base 1, 2 and 3).
