It's not that you SHOULD’NT have intensity during your base period workouts; it’s that you shouldn't have an ABUNDANCE of it. Zones 1 and 2 should dominate; 3 should fall into second place. But Threshold and VO2 have far too much prominence.

I've been a road cyclist with a penchant for speed ever since my first-ever paycheck holiday. I blew the whole wad on a turquoise Schwinn Tempo with then-new Shimano 105 indexed shifting way back in 1985. I've been a voracious consumer of racing-oriented information ever since. Training, nutrition, bike fit, racing techniques, and all manner of "kit." Between nearly 30 years of riding, racing, and reading about racing, I'm ready to help you get ready to race.
