I really like the idea of continuous improvement but I am pondering how best to use it.

Continuous Improvement doesn’t have a end date. It’ll will help you see, relative to your Athlete Type and Improvement Rate where you were 6 weeks ago and where you’ll be 6 weeks from now if you maintain the Improvement Rate. Focus is on your Athlete Type but not as specific as you would get in the Build phase with a Target event training program
Currently I am trying to rebuild base fitness after a layoff and my goal is to do longer rides and climbs, virtually, eventually an Everesting attempt.
I have set my phenotype to Century rider and that is fine but every ride in this period is an endurance ride, which is what I expected.
In a few weeks time I will wish to move to a ‘polarised’ plan with plenty of base and a couple of hard sessions a week. I therefore assume that I will find a phenotype that offers that combination.
What my thought would be that it would be good if a blog entry was posted which broke the rider types down and indicated the type and number of sessions per week. That would then allow an easy way of amending your training based on rider type and using CI to its best.
I hope that makes sense.
