      lynda, i know you are the expert and by no means am i second guessing you but i am looking at the training plan for the ride times and they seem pretty short compared to what i usually do. day 3 week one is only 30 minutes on the bike? i want to do what you recommend however i usually ride 2 plus hours everyday. please advise. thanks.

      Hi Ryan,

      Doing the same thing every day leads to staleness and performance plateaus. It is key to vary the duration and intensity of your rides for steady performance progress.

      i agree with you on that for sure. i just want to make sure 30 minutes 2x a week, and 1 hour or so 2 x a week is enough for me? tuesday, wednesday, thursday and friday are much shorter than what i usually do. then the long weekend rides are less than i do on my normal rides with the exception of the 3 hour ride on some sundays. and the base plan is that amount of riding every week. again, i don’t have the experience and expertise you do so i am just shooting from the hip. does the mountain personal best plan have longer rides or should i just drop it and go with what you are telling me to do. thanks and i just don’t want to get fat! lol

      I recommend following the plan or doing your own thing. I do not recommend a hybrid option of following the plan plus doing your own thing. These are choices for you to make.

      I believe the plan is the optimal route to performance and have many athletes success stories to back this up.

      I am here for coaching support and advice. I am not here to argue with you.
