Following on from my last post on Dr Ferrari’s training zones, this is a three day micro cycle Dr Ferrari would get Lance Armstrong to do while training for the Le Tour de France.
Please note that I am not positive what time of year Lance would be doing these training blocks. Like most cyclists, Lance was on a three day micro cycle that looked like
- Day One: 4.5hrs done as 2hr @ Lento, 1hr @ Medio @ 30-40min @ Soglia
- Day Two: 5.5hrs with 2.5hrs @ Medio
- Day Three: 2.5hrs done @ Lento
This three day micro cycling was repeated over and over and over again. As you can see, Lance spent a lot of his training volume riding tempo and threshold.
