I’m signed up for IM Mont-Tremblant and considering Eagleman 70.3 as a ‘B’ race. The Half falls 11 weeks from my Full (or on week 6 of my Build if I work backwards from the Full date). Unfortunately, the Build calls for a hard brick or 70.3 on week 8. So which would be better?
- Keep the Build start date the same; just add a short taper before and after the race in week 6.
- Move the Build start dates up 2 weeks; so that the race coincides with week 8 of the Build and then repeat weeks 7 and 8 of the Build to close the gap before the Specialty.
Anything else I should consider? Most of the other big local Half’s are earlier not later.
