Leborne x Big Dam Bridge 8 Week Program
…Will release on July 29tH
The Big Dam Bridge 100 event provides an organized century with 4000+ feet of elevation gain. Whether you plan to ride it leisurely on your own timeline or are trying to break a certain goal time with your local club team, this 8-week training program is designed to help you complete the challenge.
Leborne Coaching has tailored these 3 programs (100 mile, 68 mile, or 50 mile training options) to the cyclist who can typically complete 2-3 shorter duration rides during the weekdays, then a good long ride on the weekends. And there will be options to add more time if you can! By following the program, you'll build:
1) endurance to withstand a long day on the bike
2) ability to tackle some harder climbs
3) comfort in a large group setting
The workouts prescribed use heart rate zones and cadence, and instructions will be provided on how to set these for yourself after completing a max heart rate test during week one. Neither a heart rate strap nor cadence is required, but they are highly recommended to get the most out of the program. If you do not have these devices, you can use RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion).
In addition to the bike work, Leborne will include two short core sessions each week to develop flexibility and strength. If you currently practice this on your own, you can continue to use your own program.
The 8-week program will include notifications for the Big Dam Bridge 100 training rides provided by The Meteor Bike Shop. If you're local to central-Arkansas, these will be great training opportunities for building endurance and group handling skills.
All you need to do is purchase the plan, which will be available late July, and open a FREE TrainingPeaks . We will then release the training program into your account for you to follow along daily.
