    Hi Lynda,

    Thank you very much for the recommendation. Earlier, I also bought the 40+ Master 100 Mile Personal Best plan, but even I could look at the TrainingPeaks graphs and see that the first four weeks (neither one) were simply not going to happen on any planet… Sheer willpower and hardheadedness can only do so much!

    I now purchased the 40+ Masters Base Plan as well…

    What is the easiest way to stack these in TrainingPeaks (I aplogise for these newbie questions)?

    – Do I apply the Base Plan starting now, and simply delete the activities added for weeks 10-12?
    – How do I then get the second plan to start at week 7? Do I add it later, and simply drag the activities for those three weeks to where I want it?

    A bit more information — The event starts 17 May 2020, it will take us at least four days to drive to the starting point. I will be able to do short rides each night once we’ve set up camp, but it will be too hot during the day.

    I’ve done this event before (in 2015) as part of a relay team, when I was 10 kg heavier, but a bit younger. This time I’ll be doing it solo. Being small, I’m on 27.5″ wheels (not 29″ like the big boys, but at least an upgrade from the 26″ I used the previous time).

    The event distances are:
    Day 1 – 228 km
    Day 2 – 122 km
    Day 3 – 143 km
    Day 4 – 101 km
    Day 5 – 55 km

    The hills (and heat) start towards the later days.
