I have to say that I love TrainerRoad and the podcast. I look forward to it every day. Five Stars+!
I have been through Sweet Spot Base 1 and 2 mid volume, the General Build mid volume and now I am doing the Cross Country Olympic mid volume at this time. I will finish the plan as I finish the season for my last race XC race. My races now are about 10 miles and last around 40 minutes or so.
I will have from June 28th to the Sept 28th before my next race. I will be doing two 50 mile races and one 30 mile race for the rest of the year all of them being on a mountain bike. There will be approximately be 8 weeks before doing 50 mile races. Should I go back to a sweet spot base and XC marathon or take some time off and just do the XC marathon? Any feedback will be helpful.
