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!

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.

I successfully completed the Leadville 100 with a chip time of 9:18:32!!
I struggled a bit with the build, peak, and race plan as I had received some power meter pedals for Christmas and was adjusting to the difference between Peloton power and a more accurate power ranking. I also discovered in this process that I leverage a lot of VO2 max in my FTP tests and so, need to do the Hunter Allen protocol of doing a 5 minute all out effort before a 20 minute FTP test. This all resulted in me thinking my FTP was higher than it was so I was struggling to complete work outs for that section. Once I got a better handle on my FTP I was able to follow the 100 miler workout pretty well. Occasionally I’d do some higher volume rides than described which helped my overall aerobic endurance but, at the cost of a some muscular endurance.
Thanks for the plans and the support in stacking!
