Hi, I took the plan finder, or whatever y’all call it, and it gave me a beginner plan which seems maybe a bit light for me. I’m 52, 6′ 2″, 200 lbs right now and have been doing fairly regular offseason training both on the MTB and on Zwift. Zwift is a great app, but the training plans seem bizarre to me (super random) and I’m looking for a plan I can plug into Zwift for the indoor portion of my training.
I have 2 A races, the Old Cabin Classic on May 30 and the bike leg of the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. OCC is a 23 mile, 2500 ft. of climbing MTB race, and Escape is an 18-mile, very hilly TT on a road bike. Escape is a sub-hour effort, OCC is about 2 hours.
I have been doing about 2-3 hours a week indoors at zones 1 and 2 for the last 2 months, with one fairly heavy, very technical 2.5 to 3 hour MTB ride with my buddies on most weekends. The climbs are zone 4+ for me, the group I’m with are very strong. I won’t give that ride up as it’s very social and super fun, and would love to do a plan that incorporates that outside work as well as the Zwift time and I guess some weights. Which I don’t have but am willing to purchase.
Thanks for any help!

Counting from today you have 17 weeks to your first race, the Old Cabin Classic on May 30. I recommend you start with our 12-week Masters 40+ Mountain Bike Base Mountain Bike Training Plan and then progress on to our Masters 40+ Cross Country Mountain Bike Build Peak and Race Mountain Bike Training Plan to peak for your events. Each of these plans are 12 weeks long. I recommend following all 12 weeks of the Base plan and the final 5 weeks of the Build, peak and race plan to fit your timeline (or final 4 weeks if you start the plan next week on 2/10).
