I am in the midst of the Triathlon Plan 1, in week 8.
Next week is a recovery week, and the week after is the first week that has a brick workout. The volume also really seems to pick up in exactly that week.
I will go on ski vacation that second week and will not be able to train except maybe for an occasional run on the treadmill, if the hotel has one. I will also not ski excessively, because I have 3 kids that have to be taken care of and I am a bad skier also… So I think that week won’t be physically that taxing.
So in order not to miss that week in the volume progression, I am now planning to swap the next week with the week after.
Is that an absolute no go, or is that ok? I cannot move the whole plan back by a week, because I have a race that I’ve backwards calculated from.
