Singletrack Slayer training plan

I completed the full plan in 2021 right before the race season. I use WHOOP and it was showing some serious fatigue by the end of the plan and I needed a full week and a half off just to get my recovery scores back up. This plan calls for riding 7 days a week for 10-12 weeks. I think you need to be smart and chose your rest days in here, if you try and do every scheduled ride, 7 days a week you will just over train and do more harm than good in the long run.

That being said, I came out of this block in the best shape of my life. I ended up winning 6 out of 7 races (one 2nd place) and took the overall series for my age.

I’ve started the plan again for 2022. Unfortunately I started it a little late and the full plan is going to run past my 2nd race in the series, so it’ll be a challenge to battle the fatigue that you build up from this and being fresh for race day. This will result in me missing a few of the sessions on race week.

Overall it’s a legit plan that will get your legs ready for race season.

This is interesting. I agree there’s no way to do those rides in 1 week. I’m doing the TT Tune Up which is similar…beastly high intensity stuff during the week and subbing long rides from gran fondo for the weekend. I find that doing those TT workouts over the course of 2 weeks is more reasonable. I’ve asked zwift to move that plan into the workout area so we can really do it on our own time frame
