Five Months to Gravel Success with Endurance Training, Strength, and Yoga

All plans by this Coach


20 Weeks

Plan Description

Early summer gravel racing in Wisconsin is marked by the dual Bears: The Hungry Bear in Cable, WI the first weekend of May and the Bear 100 in Laona the second weekend.

Use this plan to get ready for one or both of these amazing gravel races - or use the plan to get ready in five months to crush your own gravel event! You can be an everyday athlete of any experience to use this plan.

All of my plans include endurance training, strength training, yoga, and full email support ( Email me with questions any time!

Every week includes strength training sessions designed to build your back and glute strength, yoga for recovery sessions, endurance work, and intervals. Plus it's designed for busy people in a busy life with short weekday workouts and longer weekend rides.

During the winter months, we can work on the trainer with tempo intervals and gradually build our endurance to be doing double weekends.

If you're doing a short version of the race, you can cut back on the volume on the weekends; similarly, if you're doing a longer version, you can add more mileage on the weekend adventures.

As always, please contact me with questions at

Simple Endurance Coaching

We all have our bucket lists of events we want to do. And we all have our target on goal times for our events.

But how do we hit those marks and still have fun along the way?

My coaching is equal parts cheerleader, trainer, teacher, and guide.

Most of the people I support simply want to improve on yesterday.

Our coaching for cyclists and runners is a unique blend of endurance, strength, and yoga.
