    Hi all,
    Starting next week, I will be on the Level 0 full ironman plan, in conjunction with the correspondent premium strength training.

    I have a kind request, regarding rescheduling the workouts because I’m following a master swim class, targeted for triathletes, which is on fix days (Tuesday and Thursday).

    I know that is not ideal regarding week distribution, but I must work around this schedule. So, I figured out 2 possible week formats for general phase:

    Format A
    Mon: Strength session 1
    Tue: Swim Run intervals (RSP/RT/RHR etc.)
    Wed: off
    Thu: Swim Bike intervals (CCI/CT etc.)
    Fri: Strength session 2
    Sat: Run long (foundation run/aerobic run etc.)
    Sun: Bike long (foundation bike/aerobic bike)

    Format B
    Mon: off
    Tue: Swim Strength session 1
    Wed: Run intervals (RSP/RT/RHR etc.)
    Thu: Swim Bike intervals (CCI/CT etc.)
    Fri: Strength session 2
    Sat: Run long (foundation run/aerobic run etc.)
    Sun: Bike long (foundation bike/aerobic bike)

    Please help me with some advice in order to choose one of the two formats.
    Also, any additional ideas will greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your kind help,
    Marius

    Marius, always great to hear from you in the Forums.

    First, note that the swim workouts can be moved to any day of the week without consequence. The recovery time from swimming is so quick (and in many ways enhances recovery) that you can move them at your convenience.

    However, if I were to choose Format A or B, I’d choose B. The rest day is better positioned for maximum benefit, and I think a swim/strength combo is idea.
