Century Module

Ride your best century ever!

​Designed to supplement the basebuild and peak modules of my modular training plan, or be used as a stand alone training plan, the century plan will give you the basic skills and fitness necessary to tackle your first century.  If you're an experienced cyclist, it will push you to your best century ever.

  • 12 total weeks of training
  • 3 rest weeks
  • Use as a standalone training plan or combine with any other module for a more comprehensive plan.
  • Workouts are based on Lactate Threshold Heart Rate or Functional Threshold Power (LTHR or FTP) which you can read more about in this post.

About the Author:

After graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in Exercise and Sport Science/Pharmacology, I continued my education with a doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College. As I progressed through my education, I was able to apply the concepts I learned in the lab to my own daily workouts and goals. At the time, I was following some of the principles of traditional coaching and getting mediocre results. Frustrated, I realized that if I could apply all my physiology, chemistry, nutrition and training knowledge, I could “build a better mousetrap” not just for my own training, but for other athletes. With this goal in mind, I started Tailwind Coaching, to help cyclists [with busy lives and limited training time] become stronger, faster, fitter and healthier. And while I may not be a ex-ProTour rider, an Olympic Coach or even a prolific race winner, I am something that most coaches are not: a regular guy just like you who has a job, a family and a desire to be a stronger cyclist.
