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

Updated: Jan 7, 2020

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.
