Hey- I am a triathlete looking at building out my season for a full ironman in May.
I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts about doing the sustained power plan or the long distance build plans. I have completed the sweet spot base plan mid volume, and I am in the middle of the full distance base phase high volume. I am not finding the high volume full distance base plan to be as challenging as the sweet spot base plan, and I am thinking about the switching to the sustained power build plan instead of moving on to the full triathlon build section.
The sustained power plan has a higher weekly TSS, but lacks the long rides on weekends, and instead has two, shorter rides on Saturday and Sunday. I was thinking about doing the sustained power build plan and only doing the one long ride from the long distance triathlon plan.
Any thoughts on this plan?
