You have stacked training for me this year around CTR and a series of 5 races. One of those race dates got moved to April 20. So, bumped up to weekend after next.
I am currently in CTR week #3 and I need to taper next week for the race. I assume I will just switch to CTR week #12 for next week taper?
The thing is then the next race is 2 weeks after this one and then there is another race 2 weeks after that. Should I do this pattern:
Week#3 CTR this week, CTR week#12 taper, race, recovery week, CTR #12 taper week, race, recovery week, CTR #12 taper, race, recovery week, then back to CTR plan?
If so, what is a good pattern week for the recovery weeks?
I can draw from the 100mile PR, Cat 1 Cross Country, CTR, or SS Base.

I just re-checked my current plans from recommendations from you and you prescribed a “week off” for recovery weeks. So maybe that is the best pattern.

4/15 – Change to week 12 CTR plan
4/22 – week 11
4/29 – week 12 PMBAR/PRAR
5/06 – week off
5/13 – week 12
