Name: Mark Dowling
Weekly Training Routine
Monday is generally one to two hours steady riding as a recovery from the previous days racing. The route would normally be around Enniskerry and Bray and these 2 locations would be the preferred routes for my shorter rides.
Tuesday will be focused on hill training . The ride will be anywhere between four to five hours in the Dublin Mountains.
Wednesday is made up for two rides of two hours each . Morning ride will consist of sprint training and the evening ride will be made up of flat and hill 5 min max efforts.
Thursday will be a long ride up to six hours out in the direction of Laragh and Blessington which are places in Wicklow that are very cycling friendly but hard roads.
Friday will be a short 1.30hr ride with some max efforts to prepare the body for the weekends racing . Saturday and Sunday are race days around the country where I hope to achieve my goals or work towards them.
