My training as a Cat 3 roadie began last week. Was able to ride 12hrs last week and on my way to 12hrs again this week
I have done my annual Training plan. Well, I have my weekly hours computed but I have not written down my goals. If you ask me right now my goal would be "to survive" my first race as a Cat 3. Not surviving in this case would be falling behind the pack.
Things to work on in the off season - My Base endurance, raise my cadence to 95-105rpm and my 1 minute sprinting power... among other things.
