Entering the Convict 100 is one thing, but how do you truly prepare?
Following a training program doesn’t need to be a bore, but a structured approach will help you reach the start line in good shape for the start – and not destroyed by the finish.
We have teamed up with MarathonMTB.com racer and head coach at Mind Matters Athlete Coaching, Justin Morris, who have developed a 12-week and 6-week training plan specifically targeting the Convict 100 event. Sessions are devised specifically to help riders through certain sections of the Convict course.
12 Week Training Plan for $69 – Starts Monday, 25th July 2022
6 Week Training Plan for $39 – Starts Monday, 5 September 2022
Once you have signed up, you will get free access to a TrainingPeaks account, with your daily training laid out and access to everything you need to start training without any extra cost required. You’ll get details on how to use the plan, and some reminders about how to best prepare for a successful Convict 100 event.
All you need is a bike with sessions that can be completed on the road and/or trail. Some stretching and strength sessions are also included which can be completed at home but do not require any equipment.
You can be assured that the training plan has been put together by an accredited coach, taking into account the right principles for training, progressive overload and recovery.
In addition to the training plan there is an opportunity to access continued coach consultation/contact throughout the plan for a discounted extra cost ($80 extra per month which includes fortnightly phone call, email contact and construction of personalised Mind Matters mental training resources).
