    Sorry me again ….

    Or… if i was to decide that the work/life events that currently fall on week 8 are too major to juggle .

    is there a good option to insert a week after (current) week 8 to extend it out ? ( as that does currently work quite well.

    I see week 9 is big but then the next few reduce

    thanks and sorry for being a pain with the questions …. šŸ™‚

    Thanks Lynda

    Sorry , just to get my head around the insertion of a week .

    So I would carry on as current for another week – complete week 4 . Insert week 2 then – pick up back at week 5 and run that all the way to the event ?
    ( I presume I can change the dates on TP ??)

    And that would just give me a 4 week cycle for that period ( ie 3 on-@ 10.5/11.5/14.5 hrs , 1 rest)

    Looking at the ramp up of hours /tss etc would this still be an ok scenario even If i decide to not do the races ? I would presume I would just keep a close eye recovery !
    I noticed a little extra fatigue this week after the first ‘couple of big weeks’.

    I am more than happy to remove the local races in favor of getting the end result right .

    We have and an escaltion on Covid here , but it sounds like the Govt has a good reaction so hopefully the evnt will still go ahead for the end of Oct’.

    extra note- looking at work / life commitments , Week 8 days 6 & 7 will be the ones that I will struggle to commit to fully .
    Could that be a good one to repeat and carry on from there ?

    TIA

    Hi again Lynda

    So , I am approx 2-3 weeks from starting the 24 weeks of training as we have discussed in this thread earlier .
    I will be heavily using Zwift and have just upgraded my trainer – as with Covid lockdowns and winter approaching here in NZ I can see being indoors alot . So I will go for the TP version !

    do I need to allow any additional weeks in between the the 2 plans and or the event or can I just calculate the 24 weeks and choose the start date from there ?

    Thanks
    Dave

    Thanks again Lynda !!!

    From a having fun point of veiw – I could ask for a better response šŸ™‚

    Im going to explore using TP (So when buying the plans I know which to file type to buy) .
    I have never used it before , but figure if Im going to do this -Ill do it right .

    cheers
