Team Specialized Masters and Junior Development Squad.
Reflections:- Consistency pays off with sprint workouts (May 15 is week #13 and we will continue to do these through August)… every rider that has been consistent has improved- So far, we have worked on headwind/ tailwind sprints, sprints from a jump, sprints from a roll, sprints with little rest (and lots of rest), lead-outs, 3-up sprints, bumping (at low speed), big gear/ little gear and drag racing.- We have talked about having a plan for every ride: should you do more efforts than we’re planning? Less?- We’re practicing safe riding although there have been a few falls… we will continue to practice safe sprinting.- We talked about slowing down after “efforts” so that you can focus on your speed, not your enduranceSo, with all that being said, I thought that I’d mix this up next week, just for varietyMay 15 plans-- 2 technique sprints as usual for a warm-up- same starting spot for all of these sprints (turn 4)- 1 headwind sprint for about 10 seconds- 1 headwind sprint for about 30 seconds (can you make it through turn 1?)- 1 headwind sprint for about 45 seconds (can you make it through turn 2?)- 3 laps recovery- 1 headwind sprint for about 10 seconds- 1 headwind sprint for about 30 seconds- 1 headwind sprint for about 45 seconds- 3 laps recovery- 1 headwind sprint for about 10 seconds- 1 headwind sprint for about 30 seconds- 1 headwind sprint for about 45 seconds- all doneModifiers- as always, you can go longer, go shorter, add more or do less. You can lead or draft. You can work on your jump or you can start your sprint from a higher speed. We’re flexible out there cuz none of us sprint the same or need the same workout to achieve our goals, right?Lar
