I’m starting week 7 of 8 of the Rolling Road Race Low volume plan and am slightly confused by the weekly instructions.
I would like to do a weekly training race starting this week or next. I don’t have an A race. I am
just working on doing something new and fun instead of triathlons.
The week 8 instructions says:
“Entering what’s likely to be your first of many Race weeks to come (assuming you’re not already racing), you’ll need to decide which workouts will take place indoors and which will be skipped in lieu of training races or higher-priority events.”
Does this mean I can just substitute one of the 3 workouts for my weekly 45-60 minute training race? Do I do the 3 weekly workouts and the race? Does it matter which workout I substitute. There are two 30 min and one 60 min work for week 8.
I have a choice to race on Tue or Wed. Do I just move my Week 8 workout to a different day?
After week 8 do I just repeat weeks 8 3three workouts for the 4 weeks of racing?
What is the recommended approach?
