So, as mentioned on the recent A Race for 2019 thread, my two A events are only 3 weeks apart - mid July and early August but are significantly different.
My first event is a 100 miles / 4,000 metres of climbing epic where survival will be my only aim. I think my natural Diesel engine will be okay with this if I follow the recommended sustained build / century plan.
However, my ‘A Race’ 3 weeks later is the Ard Rock Enduro. Whilst this will require some pedalling and maybe 2,000 metres of climbing, I’m only timed in the 7 * 4 minute timed stages. If I hadn’t signed up for the above epic, I would have been committed to Short Power build and a gravity speciality with lots of power work in the gym.
Obviously there’s no time in between these events to ‘switch’ speciality. As the second event is a race, I’d like to optimise for performance in this whilst not hurting my chance of completed the earlier event. Thoughts?..
