    Looking at getting the gold subscription, but haven’t signed up yet (I only have basic TP right now) – still trying to figure a few things out including these questions:

    1) My triathlon A-race is this weekend. Next in the calendar is a half-marathon in August; I’d like to do the Level 1 or 2 half-marathon plan AND a strength plan at the same time. Is this possible, or will training peaks only let you do one plan at a time?

    2) Also, just checking, it is possible to drag-and-drop/upload cycling workouts into training peaks during my half-marathon training plan to keep up with my triathlon fitness, right?

    It absolutely is possible to have multiple plans. I personally am currently doing the level 1 marathon plan, level 1 marathon strength plan, general running flexibility plan, & ham/glute flexibility plan.

    It is also very possible to drag and drop workouts. TP is very versatile and flexible.

    So I have a Level 1 and 2 marathon access .. i honestly feel as if I am level 1 now, will be level 1.5 in 8 weeks, then level 2 ..

    load BOTH programs and delete the workouts I DONT want ? looks like they are “volume” differences as opposed to any major structure difference .. ??

    what say ye wise one ?

    Since I don’t see any wise ones stepping up to answer your question, I guess I’ll have a crack at it. Bear in mind that all of the plans, Level 0-3, are progressive in nature, meaning they turn you into a higher level athlete without any need to change levels. When an athlete chooses the right level, they find the early weeks easy, the middle weeks moderately challenging, and the latter weeks quite challenging. Transitioning from one level to the next pithing a single macrocycle will compound this built-in progression, such that unless you find the early (Level 1) weeks absurdly easy, you’re likely to be completely overwhelmed by the latter weeks of Level 2. I’m not quite talking you out of what you propose, but I am seeing “Proceed with caution.”
