Question Regarding Rest Week vs. Recovery Week

I’m currently building towards Ironman Muskoka Duathlon. I just finished the long distance base program - since the race is in July, I was going to repeat the base program again, (based on advise from the podcast - to double up the base), before doing the build program and then the specialty program.

Should I be taking a rest week in-between the base programs? The last week of the it is called recovery week so is that enough? or should I rest my body a bit?

No extra recovery needed, roll right into the next Base. The plans have sufficient recovery weeks and TSS progression that no time off is needed between plans.


awesome, thanks for the clarification. Thanks!
