Yup! Remember, my MISSION in life is to democratize endurance sports for all. I want to provide a cost-effective training solution to you through training plans and answer any questions you have so you become a gravel racer for life!
If you provide an email during checkout I will send you a series of emails that will help you get started.
Some limits do apply, however. If you want training plan personalization, workout analysis, frequent check-ins, and someone deeply invested in your athletic goals, what you’re looking for isn’t a training plan, you’re looking for coaching.
I offer plans from 6-27 weeks long with beginner, intermediate and advanced ability levels. If you’re not sure which one fits you, read on.
Choosing the right level is crucial to your success.
If you’ve never trained before, pick beginner.
If you train somewhat frequently or have a background in other endurance sports, pick intermediate.
If this ‘isn’t your first rodeo’ and you’re a gravel veteran looking for the next level, pick advanced.
Don’t lose sleep over your choice. I can swap our your plan within 14 days after purchase if it’s too easy/hard.
For best results, count back the weeks from your goal event and choose a plan to fill in the gap. If you have other less important races in between, you can incorporate those in as needed.
In general, longer plans start easier and progress more gradually than shorter plans. That doesn’t mean to procrastinate! Keep in mind the longer you have to prepare, the fitter you can get! Your body responds best to consistent gradual cycles of stress and recovery, which is EXACTLY how my plans are built!
Yep! My training plans allow you to easily swap out a few days each week to suit your availability. e.g. swap out a hard solo ride for a group ride or race, etc.
If you purchase TrainingPeaks, you can even drag and drop workouts onto different days. I provide guidelines on how to do this in my help center.
You can also train for multiple events. The build of my training plans targets an ‘A’ race, but you can always swap out some weekend rides for a ‘B’ or ‘C’ race. I show you how to do other races in the help center without compromising your preparations for your main goal.
Beginner (7-27 wks)
Train right for your first race. 3-6 hrs per week, 4-6 workouts
I’ve spent years failing badly at bikes so you don’t have to. I have a mortgage, two kids, a wife, a dog that doesn’t listen, a weakness for Miller Lite, and fish frys – but I can still turn a pedal if I have to. Chances are we’ll get along just fine.
