      Hi Lynda. Need some input on where to go next. I’ve completed the Masters 40+ Peak and Race and I’m finishing the Masters 40+ 50 mile PR plan this weekend. I stacked these two plans. Unfortunately I’ve not been able to race at all. Everything has been cancelled. In two weeks I’m doing the Belgian Waffle Ride down in Cedar City, UT. It’s not a MTB race. It’s 125’ish miles of mostly gravel. What would you suggest at this point? I’d like to be as prepared as I can be and also carry on with my training post BWR. However, it won’t be long before riding outside (here in Idaho) won’t be possible. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

      Hi Guy,

      I recommend you repeat weeks 11 and 12 from your Masters 40+ 50 mile PR plan to peak for BWR in Cedar City.

      After BWR I recommend you take one week recovery then 2 weeks just riding all the best trails in ID before they are snowed in!

      What is your next goal? Are you winter racing or looking forward to 2021 goals? What do you need to improve to push your performance to the next level for your next goal?

      Got it. Will repeat those weeks.

      Looking forward to some recovery for sure. And riding the mtb before the snow flies!

      My next goal…probably a 60k fat bike race in January here in Idaho. The Fat Pursuit is always challenging. Especially dependent on snow conditions.

      Other than that, nothing else on my calendar. Waiting on more winter racing dates to be announced.

      I feel like I’ve definitely become stronger. I’d still like to up my threshold especially on longer climbs, say between 5 and 10 km with grades between 6 and 10 percent. I feel like at times I just can’t hold the wheel. That’s where I’d like to really improve. Open to ideas! Thank you Lynda.

      Hi Guy,

      Starting on 11/9 and following weeks 4-12 of the Masters 40+ 50 mile PR plan is perfect to prep for Fat Pursuit and focus on increasing your threshold.
