Plan Description

Use this plan to prepare for the epic challenge that is the Leadville MTB 100.

2 ways to use the plan:

Apply the plan so it ends on the day of the event, August 10.
-- OR --
Apply the plan early and repeat some of the weeks to get you up to race day.

Midweek rides are kept manageable in duration (< 2hrs), while you will have one progressively longer weekend ride. Total hours per week maxes out at just under 16hrs. If you have the flexibility in your schedule, you can add some volume, but don't sacrifice the planned intensity for additional volume. While you will be on the bike for a long time on race day, the intensity is what will break you down. Use the longer days to dial in your equipment and nutrition. You'll need to put down a ton of calories on race day, and training your gut is important too.
