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.
