Thank you for the quick reply.
Day 6 on the 50 miler plan is race pace for 1 hour up to 3 hours depending on the week. How much longer should I make those rides?
Thank you for the advice. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Here is more information based on Dave’s comments from last week:
First, a couple of questions I know Lynda will ask:
1. What week are you on in the plan? I finished week 12 of Masters 50 Mile PR Plan for Mohican 100, took a rest week following the week, did Week 10 days 6 and 7, will follow the plan through June 24th for Iron Mntn.
2. What are the goals for the listed events? Top 1/3 finishes in class. No particular “A” race.
Pacing a 50k is essentially a long XC race, depending on the nature of the course. How long (duration) do you anticipate it will take? Benchmarking off last year’s event, I would expect 4:20. What is your goal for that event? Top 1/3 of age group. 4 hours is about where I’ve hit the wall if I go out to fast in a marathon. Maybe that’s my plan.
Welcome back. I look forward to your comments.
Thank you. Always focusing on quality!
Although it’s strange to see the TP calendar empty at the moment, I’ve noticed some of you posts mention “ride for fun”. I am going to do that along with weight training (Stength Maint. A&B from 40+ Masters 50 miler plan except a little heavier and fewer reps, squats in particular) for a few weeks.
Then I’ll get into the 12 weeks of 40+ Base plan. Which sadly will all be on the trainer.
2018 Goals are
1) Move from mid-pack to top 3rd in 4 NUE Marathons. Starting at Mohican in early June.
2) Shenandoah 100 (so I can check the century box)
My 3 events in 2017 consisted of not pushing hard enough early in the race so I couldn’t make-up the time to meet my goal and having too much left at the end, or blowing myself up at mile 45 because I pushed to hard early thinking I would hold up. My legs would be shot and I couldn’t create enough power to get my heart rate up.
Plan: 40+ 50 Miler PR
Stitches are still in but I’m cleared to ride. The last week and a half I’ve only done strength training and taken the dog for walks.
Where do you recommend I start back with the training plan to be ready for Crotched Mntn 100K on 8/19.
Thank you for the quick reply and encouragement. I’ll check back after two weeks of core work, bench press, and left leg glute-bridges. 🙂
Thank you. I was secretly hoping for the Coggan Zones after this morning’s Z5 intervals.
Thanks for the help. The second method worked quick and easy.
