My First Full Ironman is at the end of November. I have a half Ironman at the end of July. I put the half ironman in as an B or C race because I figured I might as well do one before I hit the full in November. I am doing TrainerRoad Low Volume plans on everything so far.
What I did was work backwards in the calendar and had the full distance specialty to end the week of my Full Ironman event. Then I made the Full Distance Build to end the week before the Specialty starts and the Full Distance Base to end the week before the Full distance build starts. I then calendared Half Distance Base to end when Full Distance Base would start because I wanted to start training earlier.
I am 5 weeks in on Half Distance Base. Training is going well and I like the plans so far. What I noticed is that after I finish Half Triathlon Base that Full Distance Tri base takes 7 weeks to get the TSS back to the same level I am at with Half. This doesn’t seem right … Any suggestions on how I should be doing this differently to keep a steady TSS build?
