      Hi Lynda,

      Doing Leadville again this year and I started the Masters Base Plan a little early. I was bored with watching football and eating poorly and wanted some motivation. I started the Base plan on Jan 1st. So my question is with Leadville August 11th should I repeat Base weeks 1-8 beginning Feb 25th or should I started Master’s PR Plan early and repeat certain weeks within that plan?

      Thanks in advance,

      John

      John,

      That depends on what your Leadville goal is? Do you want to get faster? What is your goal?

        Sub 9 hour, bigger belt buckle, I need to take 39 min off my time. I felt really strong at the end and felt like I could have kept riding a couple more hours. My time was 9:39.

        Thanks,

        John

      John,

      This is great. You have an 8 week gap between ending the base plan and starting the 100 miler plan to use to increase your speed and power. I recommend you follow weeks 1-8 of the Masters 40+ Cross Country Mountain Bike Build Peak and Race Mountain Bike Training Plan in this time block.
