Make a plan, focus on your goals, track your performance

Updated: Jan 7



What are the main goals you want to achieve from your winter training? Typically we all want to 'get better, faster or stronger', but if you don't have a specific measurable target, you'll never know if you're on track. 


So whether you wish to improve your five-second power or your lactate threshold, a measurable metric will enable you to benchmark your current performance and track whether or not your training is having any effect. 


If you're solely training indoors, a power meter and smart trainer will provide the analytical data you need to track your progress most effectively. If you do not have access to a power meter a heart rate monitor still serves a purpose. Though it is a less-accurate tool when used alone, it is better than training on feel alone. 


When constructing a plan, you should use a coach to find a manageable balance between training load and recovery. At Sparks into Life we use Today's Plan which allows us to plan and track all your training sessions. The configurable dashboard provides a clear overview of the clients fitness and fatigue levels, which can be immediately accessed by the cycling coach if necessary.
