    Do I Have Enough time - Worried

    Just worried about If i will be ready. As of this message its March 23 2014
    I have a major goal set for May 31 2014 to race a 100 miler the Mohican 100 - the 100 mile course

    now I have ridden 100 miles races before and finish. I have been training, XC ski and riding more now.
    slowing building up endurance. towards this event, as harder since the roads here are all still under snow.

    But in general do i have enough time from now till May 31st to try to get in peak form for the mohican 100. I been with a coach as well. etc.
    Seems thought I am under prepared. suggestions?

    So main questions, would there be enough time even for someone going from scratch to be able to do well or at least ride at full potential for this event on that date. thanks

    No, but it doesn't sound like you're starting from scratch. You shouldn't have any problem if you've been riding (indoors) and XC skiing 10+ hrs/wk during the winter. What does your coach say? It's impossible for anyone here to give you an answer without knowing how you've been training.

    Time-crunched Cyclist, advanced competitor program. Timing will be perfect.

    That's what I was going to say, although I am following the commuter program. I got a trainer recently and have been doing all my intervals indoors. I can't vouch that the program works, as I'm just at the end of week 2, but there is plenty of positive feedback on the www for the Time-Crunched Cyclist programs.

    I did the easy program and I think it was very good, but I'm such a poor cyclist it's hard to know for sure. I'll have a better idea when I do my century in three weeks.
