I have plenty of time to my next A races (cross triathlon). Is it better to have more time for strength training or should I start later?
My plan is
32 weeks strength and base for 70.3
6 weeks hill climbing or cross country intervals
6 weeks cross country intervals
2 weeks taper
I have also planed some spare weeks for b-races, festives, illness and others.
As I found last year’s 10 weeks strength quit short, I prefer to stretch the strength now to 15 to 18 weeks. Good or bad idea? And if so, which phase should I extend?
