Winter Training

My winter training kicked-off in September (I like to get ahead of things) and has progressed well. I’ve stayed healthy and been able to get some good miles in:

September 749 miles

October 769 miles

November 494 miles

December 385 miles

January 530 miles

As the mileage has gone down the training intensity has gone up, so although I’ve reduced the miles I’ve been riding harder and increasing my training stress.

The graph above shows how my training stress has increased since September. My current chronic training load (CTL) is 70 and I hope to maintain this CTL throughout the season.

My first race of 2015 is now just a few days away so after next weeks block I plan to settle at a CTL of around 70. I’ll write again soon and let you know how my season develops.
