    I doubt if you'll learn much doing the LDs if it
    doesn't stretch her conditioning any.  Furthermore,
    you'll be with her on the trail longer and would have
    the opportunity to ride with experienced riders who
    have done this before.  The knowledge you could pick
    from their (rather fried) brains would be worth it,
    My guys accuse me of trying to kill them on their
    first few 50s!
