Plan for new dad with big race happening after being postponed 2 years

Hi Coaches

I was hoping you guys could help me. My A Race, MTB 7 days Stage Race is finally happening on August 21, according to Training Peaks, 15 weeks from now. I will definitely do the Sweet Spot MTB Marathon plan in the last 6 weeks. But, what would you recommend me do before that?. By the way, to spice things up I just become a father, and I am coming back from not training at all for the last 5 weeks after peaking for another Marathon race (3 days). Within the plans I have purchased I have: 3 week fall foundation; Climbing Intervals; Indoor/Outdoor for Smart Trainer; Sweet Spot Part 2 and Sweet Spot MTB Marathon.

I was thinking this combo: Indoor/Outdoor for Smart Trainer; Sweet Spot Part 2 and Sweet Spot MTB Marathon. However that choice is 18 weeks. If that is your recommendation, which one of the first 2 would you shorten?. And should I have rest weeks between one plan to the next one, or should I go from one to the other without problem.

I hope you really can help. Thanks in advance, Juan

Hi Juan - welcome to #DadWatts,

For your A race, I recommend Sweet Spot Part 3 before your Sweet Spot MTB Marathon Plan.

You can do your Indoor / Outdoor Zwift plan now and shorten that to have those 3 plans fit in your timeframe (15 weeks)

Good luck with your training and parenthood!
