    Hi! Just now realizing that my plan is set for a Sunday race. With an Ironman on a random Thursday, do I need to sorry about the impact this will have on taper? I will have a 6 hour bike ride and 1 hour run on September 25, then tapertown (again). Do I need to worry about this, take a day off from work and get the long ride in on a Wednesday? Split half in the morning, half in the afternoon? Thoughts,suggestions?

    D,

    It is something that needs to be adjusted, and is particularly impacting our numerous athletes involved in the IM and 70.3 World championships. Regretfully, the calculus is too complex to address here, but I’m currently offering to make that adjustment for any athlete in that position.

    Connect your TrainingPeaks account to me at https://home.trainingpeaks.com/attachtocoach?sharedKey=OKYJVWHNFAPPG and I’ll adjust your taper.

    Oh, really glad I asked! Thank you so much. I’ve attached you to my account, let me know if there is an issue.

    You’ll notice that I did have to shift some things around in the previous weeks to make sure I got my workouts in with my work schedule, don’t judge too harshly for that, but tried to stay as true to the original as possible. (Didn’t miss one workout (besides covid, and IM Cork!) 🙂

    Thanks again for your extra effort and attention, I know you and your team are really busy, and I really appreciate all of your guidance.
