It's summertime. Sweet.

But when you go on vacation it can be difficult Ė even impossible Ė to maintain your fitness levels. After all it is a time for relaxing and chilling out with your family and friends, so your cycling training program tends to take a back seat.

Lazing on the beach or enjoying a few holiday cocktails does not mean you have to throw your training regime totally out of the window. You can still maintain your fitness: the challenge is how to be creative with your time to make sure you achieve thisÖ

Finding the time without compromising your loved ones can be a challenge but it can also be fun. So I have devised a training program to make sure you donít waste all the months of hard work that you have put in while on vacation.

You can find the 2hr/week training program here (Perfect solution for your vacation):

The Magic 2 Hr/Week Cycling Training Program

Spinning

When you go on vacation it can be difficult Ė even impossible Ė to maintain your fitness levels. After all it is a time for relaxing and chilling out with your family and friends, so your cycling training program tends to take a back seat.

But lazing on the beach or enjoying a few holiday cocktails does not mean you have to throw your training regime totally out of the window. You can still maintain your fitness: the challenge is how to be creative with your time to make sure you achieve thisÖ

Finding the time without compromising your loved ones can be a challenge but it can also be fun. So I have devised a training program to make sure you donít waste all the months of hard work that you have put in while on vacation.

Here are my six steps that will make your vacation a training success:

1) Be proactive.
When you are on vacation you canít follow your regular training program. You canít train on your normal bike or ride your regular routes. Instead focus on the possibilities and not the limitations. Cycling on vacation can be an excellent way of discovering new places: take in the sights and sounds of your new surroundings while simultaneously maintaining your fitness. Read more about being proactive.

2) Cut down on the number of training days.
In fact, reducing your total training time may well be good for you. The optimal number of training days is three because you will then be able to tackle tough intervals in every session. If you train fewer times per week, you will not get enough stimuli for your aerobic system.

3) Decrease the length of training sessions.
When you go for shorter rides, it becomes easier to stay focused and concentrate. Consequently you will get more quality into your training and fewer junk miles.

4) Interval training.
The real secret to succeeding with a dramatically reduced training amount is highly effective interval training. By doing intervals, you will be able to get a lot of training with an intensity close to VO2 max. And that will largely compensate for the reduced training volume.

5) Use the 80/20 principle.
Focus on the things that improve your performance and leave the time-consuming tasks for later. So you should mainly focus on high quality training sessions and (for a while) forget about fine tuning and polishing your bike and shaving your legs etc. To sum up: spend the time you are away from your travelling partners wisely.

6) And donít forget that first and foremost you are on vacationÖ

The Magic 2 Hr/Week Cycling Training Program

I have boiled these tips down to a ready-to-use training program for you. Since this program is extremely time effective, I have called it The Magic 2Hr/Week Cycling Training Program.
