Plan Description

This plan is designed for people who want to compete in a 100 mile gravel race. The base plan is designed to create a strong aerobic fitness that will prepare you for our 12 week 100 Mile Gravel Build plan. Visit our site to learn more about choosing our training plans to meet your needs.

Start this plan 24 weeks before your goal race, then follow the 12 week 100 Mile Gravel Race Build plan for optimal race readiness. Rest days are on Monday and Friday and rest weeks every four weeks. Designed to start on a Monday with shorter workouts on weekdays and longer workouts on weekends.

Workouts are written to use a power meter, a HR monitor or rate of perceived exertion, but using a power meter AND a HR monitor is best for accurate monitoring of progress. The plan includes structured workouts compatible with your smart trainer and device to guide you through workouts in real time.

For people just getting started with training, coming off a long break or off the couch start with our 6 Week Conditioning/Adaptation Training Plan for a total of 30 weeks of training when you stack our Conditioning plan with our Base and Build plans
