I‘m 4 cycles in, had my second try at 5x5 @ 110% (first was actually 5x4 mins @ 110%) and couldn‘t do more than 1 min for the last intervall. the 1x20 @ 105% go smooth!

i‘m hooked!
next week i‘m back to running and swimming as well but will have one cycle per week for the next 4 weeks at least.

Time to get back in shape after years off. I'm going to dust off my old "Flanagan Plan" and see what happens.


Looking forward to seeing you out there again!

Ideally indoor rollers. Can’t do everything indoors without going nuts, so certainly some outdoors. If outdoors just shoot for no stops and a low variability index (NP/AP). Often people confuse low VI with meaning “flat” roads, but hills are fine as long as Application of power is even enough to produce VI within a couple percent of 1.0.

Zwift wasn’t around when I originally did this. Would be easier to do indoors nowadays than pre-Zwift.

It was such a bad idea to dive straight into this program from an untrained level. I completely destroyed myself on day 2. I almost ended up hospitalized as my CK levels in my blood peaked at 1,600. Lol...ok now but approaching getting back in shape a bit more conservatively and free form. Just logging tons of time and miles on Zwift and doing the TDZ. Seems to be working.

I’ve decided the Flanagan plan, as written is for trained athletes looking for a specific FTP block. It is not for the untrained. If untrained, JFT seems to be a better protocol.

Wut? You mean there's something to this base-miles thing after all? The horror! Heresey!
