I’m a few weeks out from finishing the base Ironman low volume plan. I started my training a bit early and now need to account for a few gap weeks before IMMT in mid-August. Following the base-build-and specialty plans in order will leave me about 6-7 weeks short.
What can I incorporate, let’s say for 3 or 4 weeks between each phase? Should I follow the first or second half of a sustained power build plan? Or perhaps just focus on a lot of VO2 work for a few weeks between each? Or just stick with the Ironman plan as is and repeat a few weeks of rides to gauge improvement?
