Final Five: Ramp up & down for Sunday Ultraendurance MTB Race (5wk)
Matthew EggletonAll plans by this Coach
This plan is for those MTB racers that have been actively training throughout the season and are in the late stages of preparing an upcoming Ultraendurance MTB Race (100 miler). The plan takes the racer through the final five weeks (35 days) of preparation -- it's the final surge of big volume, for the first three weeks, then a deliberate taper of volume without a significant decrease of intensity until the last week -- resulting in the racer maximizing both fitness and form while carrying minimal fatigue into the event.
Start this plan on a Monday so that it finishes on the race day Sunday, 34 days later.
This plan (at this price) does not include periodic communication with a coach. The intent is to offer a lower cost alternative to the fully tailored plan a professional coach can build and apply (for a premium). That said, if you're interested in the benefits of an experienced coach (and accountability partner) please shoot me a note so we can discuss how I can help (firstname.lastname@example.org).
*** All Eggleton Performance Coaching cycling training plans are best performed when the interval sessions (primarily Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday) are executed on a smart trainer and the non-interval sessions are ridden outdoors. Synch TrainingPeaks to Zwift, TrainerRoad, or Rouvy (perhaps others as well) and run the workouts in Erg Mode for the optimal experience and benefit. When riding outside in lieu of an interval session on the trainer do your very best to match the intensity level, duration, and TSS of the intended workout. Your form on race day depends on this.
