What are my priorities during Base Phase Training?
During your Base Phase the priorities are:
2. Aerobic threshold
3. Aerobic Capacity
The base phase is designed to take the time to fully establish your basic fitness abilities of endurance, force, and speed skills. This will be the longest period of your training plan. You may ahve to take a full 12 weeks to develop a strong foothold before launching into high-intensity training. Typically you can divide this into 3 periods, Base 1, Base 2, and Base 3. The volume of training will grow in each base period as cross training phases transition to on-bike training.
