I set goals for LT and over LT time each week. After the weekend's rides, I have a look at the Polar software's time-in-zone and decide how much more of that kind of thing I need and schedule accordingly. I limit myself to 1 to 1.5 hrs./wk. in the LT zone, and about 20' over LT. YMMV. Usually after a Sunday ride I can't do anything that requires an LT or LT+ HR until Thursday, so I do easier stuff on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Again, YMMV, kid.
My crazy French friend Jean-Philippe says more like 7600' for that Torture Century. Enjoy!
We'll be doing our first pass ride on Memorial Day weekend - probably Sunday. Let me know if you're interested.
