I wanted to get some feedback on my plan for tackling RideLondon. I had to defer my 2019 entry, but I hope to be extra-prepared to tackle it in 2020. I realize it is about 5,000 ft of climbing.
This year, I am in the middle of a 70.3 triathlon base, build, and race cycle (all MV) that ends in September. I started working backward from the race date and put together the following plan starting in the last week of October 2019:
Traditional Base 1,2,3 LV (LV because I plan to run a 13.1 and other races)
SSB 1 and 2 MV ( I will split SSB1 into 2x3 week blocks)
General Build MV
Rolling Road Race MV
Is there any value of putting the LV Traditional Base before SSB? My goal is to get time on the bike, but I don’t want to use the HIT plans because I need my legs to be in running shape. Perhaps repeating SSB1/2 would be better?
Finally, for the 5k feet of elevation is Rolling Road race the right choice? I’m debating between that and the century plan.
