Thank you so much!!!
Hi Lynda –
I bought the Cat 1 Base plan based on your recommendation above, but then I changed my race schedule. My big goal this year is Marji Gesick 100 (now that I actually got in/registered), but also completing the NUE series leading up to it (fine with using those as training rides more than “races”). In your suggestion above, I wasn’t clear on what I should do to maintain fitness after the first 100 miler, through to the September race.
C-Mar 26 Barry Roubaix 100 (gravel, 20 weeks out)
C-Apr 23 Cohutta 100 (mtb, 24 weeks out)
C-May 21 Mohican 100 (mtb, 28 weeks out)
B-Jun 18 Lumberjack 100 (mtb, 32 weeks out)
C-Jul 24 Wilderness 101 (mtb, 37 weeks out)
A-Sep 17 Marji Gesick 100 (mtb & hike-a-bike for me 20+ hours, 45 weeks out) (registered, A-race)
I already own the Category 1 MTB base and the 100 miler PR plan but I really like the look of the Winter training for Endurance MTB-ers plan for the cold Michigan winter to work on my weaknesses, and I like the look of the 24 hour solo MTB finisher as the final plan leading into Marji. (But I haven’t bought those two yet). I also feel like I’m not quite ready to start right this moment, as I’m still enjoying some fun fall trail riding now, and probably should take a week or so off after that and before jumping into the real training.
Do you have a suggestion on how to stack those 4 plans (or parts of them) to fit the race dates listed at the beginning (with the first 3 being fine as training rides/practice races)? If this is beyond the scope of a forum question, please let me know and I can book a call!
Thank you for all the awesome plans and articles!
