    Race Week for 70.3 World Champs I am traveling on Wednesday 9/15 (so probably not able to train that day) and the men’s race is on Saturday 9/18 not Sunday as assumed in the training plans. How would you adjust the Half Iron Level 2 race week (week 19) schedule to allow for these circumstances? I was looking at the schedule and my first pass on an adjusted schedule was this:
    M-CF9, RFF4
    Tu-SSI1, SCI1
    Wed – nothing (travel)
    Th – Brick of CFF4,RF3
    Fri – STa1, CRe1, RTa1
    Sat – Race

    But I then wondered whether moving CFF4+RF3 to less than 48 hours before the race is too much too close to race day. Alternatively, I could do CFF4+RF3 on Tuesday, move the SSI1+SCI1 to Thurs, but then I’ve got CF9+RFF4 (the last 10 mins of RFF4 being the issue) and CFF4+RF3 on back to back days Monday-Tues – is that too much on race week? Maybe there is a better solution?

    Ted, excited for your race!

    This is an example of choosing between multiple good options. There is more than one effective way to setup that final week. I personally would do the following:

    Monday – CF9
    Tuesday – SSI1, RFF4
    Wednesday – Off
    Thursday – CF3 (not on the schedule that week, just 30 minutes Zone 2)
    Friday – STa1, CRe1, RTa1

    You’ll miss a couple of workouts, that Wednesday off throws a kink into it, but that schedule works well.



    Awesome! Thanks for the guidance!
