      Afternoon Lynda

      I’m really struggling to regain my ridding fitness and strength after a knee injury that side lined me for 4 months. After rehab I did a few weeks of base then the time crunched cat 2 program but it was harder than I remember and I am really struggled to maintain the same energy levels as pre-crash. I’ve been stacking your Time Crunched cat 1 and 2 plans once a year for the last three years and they have always worked great.

      Please recommend a new plan to help me restart my training with? If you have any advice to help jump start my fitness I would also really appreciate that?

      Thank you much!
      Mark

      Hi Mark,

      Tell me a bit more about yourself and I can recommend the best plan. Are you close to your goal race weight? What is your age? Are you racing single-speed or with gears? What duration/distance are your goal races? What date is your goal race?

      Hey Coach,

      Sorry it’s been a while, work is real tough these days.

      I’m about 7 to 10 pounds over my race weight and am a 5’6″ 38 year old male. I ride a geared bike. Most races are 50 to 65 miles and I’d like to start racing late April.

      Thanks again
      Mark

      Hi Mark,

      I recommend starting back with our Category 2 Sport Cross Country Mountain Bike Base Mountain Bike Training Plan. This plan has a more gradual ramp up in training than the Time-Crunched series of training plans and will be the best way to rebuild your Base.
