    I am on the Full Ironman Plan level 3 pace and power for Coeur De Alene. As a tune up I will be racing St George Half Ironman 70.3 May 1.
    It is close to taper time for the St George Half.
    I have both the half and full ironman plans I can reference.
    If taper is typically 7 to 10 days, I should incorporate some taper workouts this week into my plan. Should I get those from the half ironman plan?
    Should I take the whole race week half ironman plan and substitute that into my plan for next week.

    Since it’s a B race, I suggest your borrow just the W-F workouts from the IM plan taper week. Good luck!

    Thanks for the information Matt. I probably should have also stated I am in the age 70 to 74 age group and have some stiff competition for a Half Ironman World championship slot. So should I taper a little more?

    That’s the safe move. You know yourself as an athlete. That’s the main thing.

    Best of luck.

    Raced ST. George a few years back. Difficult but fanstastic course.
