    Thanks. Appreciated.

    On a side note what’s your view on low cadence/muscular strength by running low gear and high power in the build phase?.

    Thanks

    Hi David. Jumping into this post to follow up with a similar question. Are Tri plans updated as well and is it worth reloading tri plans to follow the new workouts?.

    Thanks
    Mehdi

    Thanks David and appreciated. Indeed will follow the recommendation and come back. I suspect part of the solution is to turn into some sort of low carb diet the weeks leading to Ramadan to get the body used to use fat as source of energy.

    This year I had no issues training up to 10h per week and had outdoor rides of up to 2h during daylight. As long as I keep the workouts during AM within Z2 and I jump into hard short session in pm it was doable. Actually I even improved my FTP by 10w when I tested during 4th week of fasting. The other thing I guess that will help is that I am treating Mallorca as big training day (like in Joe Friel approach) so absolutely no plan in pushing especially the run too hard.

    I will get the plan now look at the workouts during the month and check with nutritionist and come back. Plenty of time to find a solution but thanks a lot for the guidance.

    May be it was asked before but just to make sure. Would you recommend that I get the strength program to add to the IM plan or its more like a “nice to have”?

    to add a bit more context, do I just buy the IM plan 23 weeks which fits nicely into May 15th? and how to plan for the 7 weeks leading to Challenge roth?

    I also want to ask about Running pace/HR, I now leaning towards buying Run pace Bike Power, when I entered my Running threshold it gave me Z2 paces which is relatively faster than what Iam used to:
    – I did a 10k as part of OD Tri in 42min30sec and half Marathon BP should be around 1:30. this gives a LT pace of around 4:05min which i think is fair if I do a 10K flat out. which gives a Z2 range of 4:45 to 5:25 min/km pace. however in the past years I was always running at around 5:30-5:45 in Z2 by limiting my HR to 140 (MAF) which i am changing now, hence my question if I just need to adapt and get used to running faster and a bit harder as part of my Z2 even if it means I go beyond my Aerobic Threshold HR which I tested in the lab at 152 bpm (5:15 min/km)

    Thanks in advance David
