Im just finishing up my last scheduled road race this weekend (Morgul Bismark), and am looking towards racing the FireCracker 50 in Breck (25 miles as part of 2 person team), and then 2-3 days later racing the Silver Rush 50 in Leadville (All 50, all by my lonesome).
Over the winter I completed the 18 week Sweet Spot, then followed that up with the 6 week Road Race plan.
Which plan do you think would be best over the next 6 weeks for me to prepare for these 2 endurance MTB events?
How much time should I spend in those 6 weeks, training at altitudes similar to what the races demand (9000-12000 ft)? I live in Denver, and can ride all the front range stuff. How much time should I aim in the higher elevation areas though? And should I reduce my wattage goals when riding at higher elevations during workouts?
Thanks for any advice!
