This plan is best applied 8-12 weeks ahead of your goal of marathon race / 100 miler / mountain bike race longer than 3 hours. Ideally, you will have completed a general preparation or 'base' phase to establish fitness and cycling skills before this more specific block of training.
I have an 'offroad base' plan in the training peaks library as well (see all my plans -> https://www.trainingpeaks.com/coach/peterglassford#trainingplans )
Features Downloadable workouts for Garmin/Zwift/Trainer Road AND strength/core routines with Document for routine. Note that not all workouts have a download as some are very simple and better done by getting on your bike and going and having fun!
The plan can be adjusted from ~6-15 hours per week, more restrictive or larger volume plans are best done as 100% made for you 3-month plans (see below)
Strength/Core/Mobility is addressed and progressed to help you arrive healthy for your race.
Workouts provide options for outdoors or indoors depending on your location and weather.
Note that if you have an irregular schedule or specific needs for scheduling/workouts I offer a 3 month 100% made for you plan for -> http://smartathlete.ca/training-plans/
