Thanks for checking out one of my training plans! I'd love to start working with you.
This plan is intended to precede any of the event-specific plans. Repeat this plan until you start your event-specific plan.
Bike choice can be customized to your event: primarily ride MTB if you are preparing for Leadville and a gravel bike if preparing for UNBOUND 200 or STMBT GRVL.
This plan will develop a strong foundation upon which you can build to your event. During this 5-week block, training sessions will target the full range of of the duration-intensity curve. Even though your event will primarily call upon the aerobic system, most events include some periods of higher intensity and the ability to tolerate repeated hard efforts.
