Plan Description

This Marathon Mountain Bike plan is a full gas no holds barred set of quality workouts scaled so that experienced riders can do the work!

This included some of the key elements of our preparation used to win over 200 races for Team Topeak Ergon and Canyon Topeak Factory Racing. This is a focused training plan for experienced competitive cyclists who balance training around a full-time job. It applies the training secrets of the pros along with other proven scientific methods. It’s exciting to share my custom workouts and insight that give me an edge at the toughest endurance races in the world. Unlike other plans this included trail based workouts and dual metric workouts (Power guided by Heart rate) help you achieve major gains.

Requirements: Good base fitness (16 weeks of base training) and the ability to train 12 hours-a-week with the ability to ride 4-5 hours one day per week off-road

What Jeremiah Bishop’s Marathon plan includes that you won't find anywhere else: • Daily race specific Marathon workouts for heart rate and power based; scaled by TSS • Top tips for tackling race week • Testing protocols for honing in on what you really need • Nutrition protocols for optimizing your lipid power • Race day strategy and notes • Optional initial phone consulting to customize your plan (Additional $70 fee)
