Hi there! I’m training for a 24 hour race on August 7 (oops a little bit into the 12 weeks already), and I was wondering if you would recommend the finisher or PR 24 hour race plan. I have done 2 solo 24 hour races and numerous other long endurance events/rides, and my goal is to set a PR (just gotta do one more lap!). The only thing is, I haven’t been doing any structured training for years, but am generally active / crosstraining, so I’m a little intimidated by the ride volume of the PR plan and wonder if the finisher plan is a bit more realistic. But I already know I can finish 🙂
A separate question is, which weeks would you skip given that I have about 10 weeks at this point?

I recommend following the PR plan. The finisher plan has more volume as it is endurance focused. The PR plan will build more speed to get that one more lap. I recommend missing out weeks 3 and 7 to shorten the plan to 10 weeks.

Great thanks! I’ll give it a shot!

So I’m in what would be week 7 of the training plan right now, but I will be out of town for work next week, so I was thinking I actually wouldn’t skip week 7, and would take the week 8 rest week while I can’t bike anyway. Does that sound reasonable? Which week should I skip for when I get back, 9 or 10?

Skip week 10.
