To hopefully help setup a decent fitness base, I’m going to follow a structured winter base training plan. I’ve chosen the Winter Training System from A1 Coaching. The training plan is reasonable at €79 and it comes with a lot of supporting content. It covers everything from a detailed 12 week plan, strength workouts, videos, webinars and more. I’m only starting the first week so we will see how it goes, but so far I’m impressed with it.

I’ve just signed up for the Etape du Tour 2016. This will be my diary for the event.
