    Hi all – I am planning on doing IM 70.3 Chattanooga on May 22. I have a local Olympic distance that was originally slated for May 1 and would have lined up perfectly with the last recovery week for distance & effort. That race got moved to up to Apr 24th.

    What is best practice for adjusting the plan between those weeks or even just the weekend long rides? Should I just add an extra hour to the ride the weekend of the 1st and call it good? I do not want to risk compromising training 1 month out from a 70.3.

    Thanks in advance!

    As your B race is 5 weeks out this won’t pose a risk to your A race. As long as you stay consistent in your training taking that weekend to do your Olympic Distance event will not have a major impact on the next 5 weeks of training (and is great practice). I wouldn’t recommend you try and add on any distance the following weekend. I would suggest a light swim and bike the day before your Olympic distance event, and then if you are feeling good you can do a low zone 2 active recovery run or bike that afternoon of up to an hour (if you feel good that is), then take your recovery day on Monday, back to business Tuesday.
