poor on longer road races
Need a bit of help with the longer road races.Im fine with anything around the 60/70 miles (can dig in)but longer races 80/90m I start to struggle.My endurance is pretty good as I had been putting the longer runs (80-100 mile) runs over the winter, but I just can't seem to do those distances at race pace.
I've got some races in mind at end July and August and was wanting to start training towards them and wondering how to focus towards the longer races.My training during the week would follow:
Mon: easy spinning recovery ride (30 mins)
Tues: Hard group ride or short intervals
Wed: short ride about 1hr 10-12 sprints 5 secs each, full recovery.
Thurs: Hard group ride or longer intervals/threshold work
Friday: Easy spinning recovery ride 30mins-1 hr
Should I maybe tack on some extra miles on say tue or thurs training ride to focus on some endurance? OR getting in some hard long rides at the weekend when no racing is happenning?Any suggestions would be great.
