      I successfully used your 12 hour plan this last spring for my first ever 12 hour race. I came in 9th out of 50!

      In 2022 I would like to do the Leadville 100 which should be on 8/13/2022 and do the Silver Rush 50 on 7/10/2022 to try to qualify for a better starting corral. I might also still do the 12 hour race at the beginning of June but, will treat that one as a C class event.

      I have your 40+ masters base plan and the 100 mile plan on TrainingPeaks. How should I stack those throughout my annual training plan? I just started the base plan last week to work through the winter.

      Thanks for your support!

      Hi Gabe,

      You have 40 weeks to train for Leadville 100. With this much time I recommend adding a speed and power training plan after your Base plan to increase your performance. Start with your Base plan, take a week off then continue on with the Build peak and race plan. Then take another week off. Next start the 100 miler plan at week #1. Follow this plan until the week prior to your 12-hour race. On that week, jump to week 11 and race week follow week 12. Take a week off after your 12 hour race. Then return to the 100 miler plan, scheduling week 12 to fall on Leadville 100 race week.
