I'm interested, but the July 4th weekend might make it hard with the family.

I like the multiple line options in the woods. Does not look like anything we couldn't handle.

If it were a 15-20 minute race max I'd be up for it. That's about as far as I've gotten up to on the elliptical machine. Any steady strenuous exercise that lasts longer than that has me completely zapped and recovery seems to take forever.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Well, you can tell this guy was flying and then got zapped pretty quickly. I struggle with that in the VCHSS races. If I turn it down a bit in the beginning I seem to finish much better in the end. If I get a hole shot I am worn out half way through the first lap and usually end up getting some help slowing down my tempo with the help of a tree, lol.

Training is tough. You can only run so long on a treadmill before you just have to stop and do something else.

Is this a new issue for you? I've been running for the last few years and, while my body doesn't work like it did when I was young and more of a lightweight, I can still get out and run 2-3 hours after building up to it (I've run every day for nearly 600 days now averaging about 2.4 miles/day). Let me know if you're interested in some ideas on improving.

So, first pick your poison in terms of an aerobic activity (running, cycling, elliptical, whatever). I've got no knee issues or anything like that which would keep me from running and it's dead simple to do so that's my preference (also, I started running so my oldest daughter would have a running partner so it kind of worked out for me). I think mountain biking on actual trails would have more carryover but it's a lot less convenient and more time consuming...

I sent this link to James - The Couch-to-5K ® Running Plan | C25K Mobile App. It's a beginning running program but you could apply the concepts there to whatever your aerobic activity is. The basic idea is that you do a little bit of easy running alternated with walking. You really don't have to go very fast to start to build up your aerobic capacity. This is where a lot of people screw things up, going so hard that they're beat pretty quickly. You should be able to talk in complete sentences while doing the main aerobic activity.

The link above has a plan for building up the volume over time but, if you don't like following prescribed plans, you could use adding 10% volume (either distance or time) from week to week as a reasonable rule of thumb. An uninterrupted hour of aerobic activity is supposed to be the sweet spot for reasonable performance in a reasonable amount of time so that could be a decent goal in the longer term.

Of course, specific fitness for riding requires riding. Your aerobic capacity can be improved through other means but you've got to do enough riding to kind of tie the two things together.

I haven't had any issues with my aerobic stamina while on the dirt bike since I've been taking the running seriously. Keeping up a daily running streak and tracking it is a good motivator for me. I've got to do at least a mile a day to keep the streak alive. You've got to find what works for you in terms of motivation... It's got to be something or it's too easy to just say, "I don't feel like it today, I'll just run tomorrow" and then you say the same thing tomorrow and the day after...

Pre entry is open. 200 riders max and I believe they already have about half that.
