Training Plans and Individual Coaching
The best way for a Denver Century participant to ensure they are prepared for the event in June is by building a training plan into their riding calendar. The more basic version is a training plan which can target an 8 week or 12 week block of training to prepare for your specific event. Different versions of these plans can cater to anyone from a beginner to an advanced level rider. The top level of engagement with the coaches at Inspired Training Center is individual coaching where the training calendar is built to be customized specifically for the schedule, fitness, and experience level of an athlete.
Inspired Training Center has a 12 week training plan they have published for beginner/less experienced riders that can be purchased here: 12-Week Training Plan
This plan is geared toward newer riders, less experienced riders, or riders getting back into shape. The plan uses simple language to describe the workouts so that no previous training experience is needed to begin. All of the scheduled rides are based on Distance or Duration so there is no extra training equipment needed. This simple but effective plan will prepare you to confidently approach the Denver Century Ride on June 18th, 2016.
