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 is a Time Crunched training plan for the athlete with little time to spend training during the week. Off days are Mon and Friday. Workouts during the week, Tues-Thurs, are 60-90 minutes long and can be done indoors or outdoors. They are short and sweet, but will give you the most bang for your buck. Workouts on the weekend are longer, ranging from 2-5 hours. The rides that are 3-5 hours don't start until the last 3 months of the program..
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 plan will give you precise instructions on what you need to do everyday of the week.
A heart rate monitor is required for this training plan and you will set up your heart rate training zones in the first week of training.
