Anyone ever use TR to prepare for the bike section of an adventure race? I’m cobbling my own program together to see how it works. So far…
Finishing Sweet spot I low volume this week, then
traditional base mid vol. which will increase my biking from 3 to 4 days/wk, then
Sweet spot base I mid vol. which will increase biking to 5 days/ wk, then
Sustained power build mid vol… that puts me two weeks out from the event. haven’t decided what to do with those two weeks but one will certainly be a taper or reduction of volume.
Also, I’m running from 4-6 days/wk
I’m hoping the bike work will give me a nice base and the sustained power build will make me more durable for the 12 hour event. there will be some paddling, so I plan to work in some rowing and skierg work to give my legs some rest but continue building cardio and the upper body.
If there are any adventure racers or experienced distant riders, I’d appreciate any training insight.
