    Good morning
    I currently have the 100k PR plan and am looking for some guidance. I am signed up for the Whaka 100k race (3000m climbing) on the 27 October 2019. I then have The Pioneer 6 day stage race starting on the 1 December. I’ve used the planning app but not quite sure how to stack the plans given I need to clockup some bigger weekend rides between now and the Pioneer. Any tips would be appreciated!
    Cheers

    Hi Cole,

    Which race is a higher priority for you?

    The Pioneer is the higher priority. I’ll probably try to train through Whaka 100, although would like to race hard during it.

    Just looking back through your 100km PR plan and wondered if you have any plans with planned TSS built in, if using TrainingPeaks?

    Hi Cole,

    I recommend you follow our 7-Day Mountain Bike Stage Race – Personal Record Mountain Bike Training Plan to train and peak for The Pioneer 6 day stage race.

    This plan is built with structured workouts you can download with power, TSS and IF targets for each workout using our TrainingPeaks format of the plan.

    I recommend starting this 12-week plan on 8/26, 14 weeks prior to your stage race. Follow weeks 1 – 7. Then on Oct 14th insert weeks 11 and 12 for a minor peak for Whaka 100. Oct 28th get back on plan at week 8 (a rest week) and follow it through to week 12 and a peak for The Pioneer 6 day stage race on Dec 1st.

    Thanks Lynda. I’ll do that. What do you recommend doing between now and the end of August?

    Hi Cole,

    I recommend you follow the first 6 weeks of the Category 1 Cross Country Mountain Bike Base Mountain Bike Training Plan between now and Aug 26th.
