I am currently followin a Plan Built’ Full Distance Triathlon plan. For tomorrow, Trainerroad is serving me with a nice ‘Base Run’ and ‘Swim Speed Intervals’ combination. I have two questions that I hope this forum community can help me with. Let me start with the easiest question / probably shortest answer:
Is it productive / OK to do both these sessions immediately in succession? For instance by first doing the swim and within 30 mins of finishing I do the run?
The description of the ‘Base Run’ is confusing:
It estimates the intensity to be RPE 9 (Race Pace), but the description says RPE6 with only a feew RPE9 bursts. Previously, I have assumed RPE6 to be more or less a Zone 2 run (because people have told me that training in Zone 3 doesn’t really add anything, just do lots of Z2 added with Z4/5 high intensity work), but how should I execute this thing?
