As a duathlete, I’m following the OLY tri plan and replacing the swims with yoga, ez days, etc. Where I’m struggling is absorbing all the intensity featured on consecutive days. This week’s schedule:
T VO2 Max bike (9x3 at 120%)
W 60 minute tempo run (wu, 35 minutes zone 3/4, cd) - about 7 miles
Th 1:15 bike with 3x12 minutes at threshold, then VO2 Max run in the PM (7x 2 minutes)
Fri ez bike
Should I place a couple of ez days after the wednesday run and perhaps build the intervals into my long bike on the weekend? I like the workouts, but the spacing seems off compared to other plans I’ve used (Friel’s Training Bible, for example).
