How many base miles do you really need?
As a coach, I'm a huge proponent of base miles and at ZBT I've developed a number of tests to help determine how developed your base aerobic system is without spending thousands of dollars in the lab. I assumed that since I was a Cat 1 getting good results that I had a good base fitness, boy was I wrong. The follow article by VeloNews talks more in depth about the importance of base training and how much a successful cat 1 was able to improve by focusing on his base fitness. If you want to take the ZBT Initial Power Assessment to see where your base aerobic fitness is at currently please feel free to contact me.
