So I’m carrying this thread over since I just signed up for the subscription training plan. I’m also going to add a couple questions to what I had originally written in the thread for “all users”
My next race is July 6th, one of the things I’m worried about with the plan I purchased is that I’m going to need to change quite a few things around so that my form is at a minimum of “10” going into race day. I set the plan on TP to actually start next week because I have a lot of family things this weekend that would sabotage starting the plan. That then leaves me with 4 full weeks of training before my next race, that 4th week is the week of the race.
Jake suggested I use this as a rest week, so I’ve now changed around my week to reflect a low TSS week (although I do have 1 day of Tabata workout - should I delete that and make it a Z1/Z2 workout?)
Jake then suggested I use the following two weeks as the hard intervals of the XC in season plan, again, makes a ton of sense but then suggested I use the 1st week of the plan which is a taper week. I obviously want to taper, that week has a TSS of about 430, isn’t that too high for a taper? Even if it’s not, I think my “form” number on TP will be in the negatives going into an A race on July 6th. I haven’t moved all of those weeks around yet but I can visualize the TSS and corresponding “form” and I’m pretty sure the result will be a form # in the negatives and I think in the negative teens.
There’s also the “regeneration week”. Starting next week should I do two weeks of intervals, 3rd week of regeneration, and 4th week (race week) using the actual 1st week of the plan but adjust the TSS to get my form right? Hopefully this makes sense.
- For moving these workouts around, do you literally have to move 1 day at a time on TP or is there a way to move and entire week into a new spot?
Thanks for input/help.
