I’ve been cycling for 2-3 years more seriously now, but inconsistently. I’ve done 3 triathlons but now training for a 70.3 in august (if covid want it, but if not I’ll still do it in the north by a lake).
Because of life, I can only train on morning weekends. So that means two days only per week and those days are in a row. Note that during the week-days I plug in 2-3 crossfit style workout so I do some high-intensity intervals/strength workouts and (when pools are open) 2 swims.
But when I plan the “low intensity” plan for 70.3 in trainerroad, it is still 3 days a week. So I don’t know which workouts to choose. The simplest way I red on the forum was to still do all the workouts of the plan, but just to stretch the time so I do all of them in the same order. That would be simple, but I don’t know how I can do that in the Plan builder. If it’s not that way, I am not sure which workouts I should pick for each week end. I was thinking maybe 1 week short-interval and long ride; 2nd week long-intervals and long ride; 3rd weeks both intervals (in that case I would use the same plan schedule of the plan builder, just ditching one workout per week in an alternative way).
Just looking for advice. Note that my goal is not to PR. My goal is just to stay in shape within triathlon training because I love it, and make it through the race without injury and under the time cap.
