Plan Description

About the Plan
This is a 3 Month Specific Build Training Plan for Long Marathon Mountain Bike Races (e.g. 100 milers).

This plan will get you fit but also make sure you are prepared technically, tactically, and logistically. It follows the same progressions and ideas I have used to help athletes through big races like Leadville, Marji Gesick, Lumberjack, Mohican, and more.

Is this Plan for You?

This plan is for Intermediate and advanced riders doing a 100 mile mountain bike marathon-styled race in about 3 months.

Check out our Best Selling 3 Month Offroad Base Plan if you are more than 3 months from your goal race

The plan requires about 6-8 hours in shorter weeks up to 12-15 hours in longer weeks. The workouts suggest a range that you choose based on your daily availability and your baseline fitness.

What Does It Include?

Because 100 mile mountain bike races can range in technicality and physiological demands there are a few notes on how to adjust key preparation workouts to better prepare you for your specific 100 miler.

The workouts suggest a range that you choose based on your daily availability, your fitness and your goals.

Weekly/monthly notes are included to help you prepare to succeed at these long races.

General Core/Yoga Sessions and Walking are included and encouraged in all Consummate Athlete Plans!

This plan has structured downloadable workouts (e.g. for Zwift/Garmin) but as the race approaches there are fewer as you are expected to be outside exploring and working on your pacing so a download file is redundant if not distracting from the goal of your workouts.

Workouts will use Heart Rate, Power and RPE (feeling) as appropriate. All Structured downloads use power but are not required to complete the plan.

Do you have an Irregular Schedule or Want a Custom Training Plan?

Consummate Athlete offers a 3 months Made For You Plan, which eliminate much of the friction of pre-made plans because it takes your schedule, goals, equipment, and abilities into account Learn about 3 Month Plans
