This post is to inquire about which Training Plan(s) would be best for my level and my goals for 2020.
I am heading to Steamboat (SBT GRVL Black Course) August 16, 2020. This is my only goal for the year other than riding and maintaining good health and fitness.
I am a 43 year old male. I ride 100 miles per week on average (2019 was around 5000 miles). I am in the weight room 2-3 times per week. I include additional core work at home 2-3 times per week. This is mostly year round. Although later in the summer I tend to drop to 1-2 times a week with weights/core and an increase in mileage from riding (to as much as 200 miles a week).
I finished the Festive 500 on December 31st, which led me into a week of no training. I am coming off of one of my two annual weekly exercise breaks. For the time being, I am heading back into the weight room 2-3 times a week and between 50-100 miles a week on the bike (weather dependent). An occasional swim may occur on days of inclement weather…
I would like to have a rest week about half way from now until SBT GRVL. A break from Base to Race, etc. One or two smaller breaks may be necessary due to family obligations.
Other than that, just looking to have a great time in Steamboat and would like to arrive as prepared as possible.
Thanks for the guidance on training plans. Cheers!
