So the final big training ride of the gravel 6-week plan prescribes this 7500+ ft, 5 hour, 300 TSS ride. Pretty hard for me to hit that TSS, let alone in that time limit. But, I went out there with the mindset of “get the elevation, get the TSS, time be damned”.
Nice work! You know what’s tough? These gravel races!
From the ‘practice how you want to play handbook’ - if you are able to match the demands in training you’ll arrive at the start line confident and capable.
Now you are ready - good luck!
Kick ass! Love the spirit.
