About the 12 weeks,
In this 12 week program, I will set the 2 main sessions for the Week. These sessions will compliment each other and build you up to your event in 12 weeks. This will be a general program that covers events for Road and Mountain Biking up to 5 hour in duration. I will set your two main sessions and you cover your recovery and Aerobic rides. 1 session will be a specific indoor session and the other performed outdoors or indoors. Remember recover from these session is important. I will let you know each week the gap between each of these JetBlack sessions. Also, these sessions start at a point you should have good bike fitness or a strong base behind you. I suggest you perform a ZONE TEST before you start this program. This way you will get the best results. We will test half way through the program and near the end. Any questions just email me.
