    Thanks Lynda. I’ll do that. What do you recommend doing between now and the end of August?

    The Pioneer is the higher priority. I’ll probably try to train through Whaka 100, although would like to race hard during it.

    Just looking back through your 100km PR plan and wondered if you have any plans with planned TSS built in, if using TrainingPeaks?

    Ok thanks Lynda. Will give it a go and see how I get on. Can’t do it all I guess!

    Thanks Lynda for your reply. I’ve now joined a swim squad, which is on a Tuesday and Thursday morning. They are pretty tough sessions but will give me a good swim base leading into summer.

    My issue is that I’m then a bit fatigued for the harder Tuesday and Thursday interval sessions. I know you recommend focusing on swim technique and easy pace so I might have to step it down a lane and go easier until after my 100km race. However, if I was to swap some of the rides around, is there any change of doing that on my current 100km PR plan? Currently on week 6 so not long to go now anyway.

    I also struggled to hit the target HR zones (no power meter) on my Tuesday VO2 intervals (4x4min x2). I reckon this was largely because of the weekend. As such, cut the intervals short after only 4. Guessing that’s the right thing to do rather than force it and not meet the targets?

    Thanks,
    Cole

    Thanks Lynda for the details. Will try maintain better pacing in the future. I suspect a power meter would help with that.

    Have a great rest of the week and weekend ahead.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Lynda. Didn’t stick to my plan anyway and went too hard at the start! Paid the price over the next 2.5 hours… Good learning curve though and tough, muddy, cold, rutty conditions for mental training. Means I missed the planned HR test in the weekend, due to the race commitment already, so will try schedule it this week if I can instead. Cheers.
