Hello all, I am 20 weeks out from Ironman Steelhead 70.3.
I am looking at doing a Base, Build, Specialty, low volume for all 3 and they are all 8 weeks long, which puts me at 24 weeks (4 weeks past my race date).
Would it be ok to shorten each phase by 2 weeks to have 6 weeks for each phase, or would you leave the full 8 weeks on for one of the phases and shorten the others more?
If I were to take out certain weeks from the plans, which ones should I take out (beginning weeks/end weeks/etc) and are there ‘key’ workouts I should not take out of each phase.
I know this is a complex answer, but appreciate any feedback.
Basically trying to figure out my best plan of attack, and still account for about 4-5 days of taper leading up to the race.
