Thanks for such a great plan. I have your book and am completing week 2 of the maintenance program and I can already see a big gain. Each workout feels very solid when I finish, which is a huge change from my floundering around I was doing.
I am doing Ironman Coeur d’Alene at the end of June 2021. It will be Ironman #7 for me. My question may be a little premature, but I’m a planner. CdA is very hilly, so I want to make sure I am prepared for that. How can I modify the plan to make sure I get in plenty of workouts that involve climbing on both the bike and run? I previously would do a semi-hilly ride (on Zwift) on Wednesday, say 2k climbing, then 3.5-4k+ climbing during my long ride on Saturday. Same with runs – I would always do hill repeats on Thursday. Is this OK? How do I modify your plan, or do I modify it?
