      Hi Lynda,
      I am racing the El Paso Puzzler 35 mile course (using the 40+ 50 mi PR plan) on January 19 and would like to do the Moab Rocks Stage Race March 30, 31, April 1. How do you think I should integrate the Puzzler into the start of the Stage Race 40+ plan?
      Many thanks,
      Sarah C.

      Hi Sarah,

      1) Which race is more important to you?

      2) What week of the 40+ 50 mi PR plan are you on today?

      Hi Sarah,

      Miss out week 7 of the 50 miler plan shorten your plan by 1 week so you land on week 12 on Puzzler race week of Jan 13th.

      1/20/2020 – Take a week off for rest and recovery.

      1/27/2020 – Start the Masters 40+ Mountain Bike 3-4 day Stage Race Mountain Bike Training Plan at week #3 and follow the rest of the plan through to week 12 and a peak for Moab Rocks.

      FYI: Moab Rocks is March 28th – 30th, 2020, not March 30 – April 1

      Great, thanks! That is super helpful. Maybe I’ll see you there.
      I noticed on the Elevated Legs webpage they sometimes have leg recovery stations at Trans Rockies events. Did they have this at the Moab Rocks?
      Thanks,
      Sarah
