Our Leadville 100 MTB Training Plan, starts July 3rd (!) for the August 14th, 2021 race. Do our 18 weeks of Sweet Spot Plan prior to build a big aerobic base!
You’ve got your coveted slot into the Leadville 100, now it’s time to log the miles in for this legendary high altitude mountain bike race!
This plan will prep you for the grueling alpine climbs in Leadville with gobs of Sweet Spot and Threshold plus a dab of anaerobic work during the week. The weekends are full of long rides up to 8 hours with plenty of climbing that will give you a chance to test your fueling plans as well as your saddle fit! There’s also plenty of low aerobic endurance work to help you build that mitochondrial density that will make you more efficient on race day. Read more about Leadville 100 MTB training here.
This plan starts with a 20min Field Test so you can set your wattage and heart rate zones in the included FasCat Training Zones worksheet. Heart rate is especially important for this race so you can properly pace yourself for a race where the lowest point is over 9,000 feet above sea level!
Additionally, this plan includes all the “marginal gains” details to get even faster: Recovery Techniques, Rest Days, Yoga (free YogaGlo Membership!!) and Foundation work – all you need is a physical therapy style rubber band and MOTIVATION! There are instructional videos in the plan for you to follow along at home. You’ll perform structured interval work during the week with the option to get out on epic trail rides on the weekends!
