If you’ve been out riding this year and are a Strava user, you’ve probably noticed the new Annual Achievements. Now, in addition to your personal yearly bests, riders have a chance to pick up the annual KOM for a segment along side the overall KOM for all time. If KOMs, annual or otherwise, are on your to do list for the year you’re also probably the type of rider that pays attention to their training.
Thanks to a recent partnership with Carmichael Training Systems (CTS, also Trainright.com), Strava users have a new arrow in their quiver when it comes to training programs. Available to all Strava Premium members, multiple training programs are available through the Strava program to help you complete that 60+ minute climbs, to 20 second town-line sprints.
Working directly with CTS, Strava has developed 10 customizable training plans with each plan lasting four weeks. To enroll in a program simply log onto Strava.com and select the training plan you wish to use under the training tab. From there, prescribed workouts will be delivered straight to your inbox on the day before your training plan is scheduled to start.
- Customize your training plan based on the number of hours you’d like to train per week.
- All plans start on a Monday and end 4 weeks (28 days) later.
- Each plan follows a 5-workout-per-week format, with workouts on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, longer rides on Saturday and Sunday, and rest days on Monday and Friday.
- Workouts will be delivered directly to your inbox the afternoon prior to the workout.
