100 Mile Mountain Bike Training Plan: 11-13.5 hours a week 3 months
Drew EdsallAll plans by this Coach
This 12 week plan is designed to get you to your top fitness for a 100 mile race at the end of the program. This training plan can be used with power and/or heart rate training.
This training plan is 5 days a week with off days on Monday and Friday. Workouts on Tues-Thurs are shorter and can be done indoors or outdoors. Workouts on the weekends are longer and are preferably done outdoors. The workouts during this training plan are 8-13 hours a week.
You will be working on a combination of building your fitness with a variety of types of rides (long, short and intense, mountain bike specific, etc.), and will also work on your pacing and nutrition for a 100 mile race.
100 mile mountain bike races require a combination of great fitness, pacing, and proper fueling. Every weekend, you will have a longer ride focusing on proper fueling mixed with great pacing. This plan will have you peaked and ready to race full speed ahead at the end of the program.
The workouts in this mountain bike training plan will give you precise instructions on what you need to do everyday of the week.
A heart rate monitor is recommended for this training plan and you will set up your heart rate training zones in the first week of training.
