I’m on the Half Marathon level 2 plan and will have the race next week.
The next race I want to run is on March 5th. Considering I’ll take a 2 weeks break for recovering, holidays etc. I’ll have only 8 weeks for preparing the race. Unfortunately there are no such short plans here, any advice on if and how I could arrange the plan to fit my need?
Your simplest approach in this situation is to reapply your plan with the new race day applied and follow the last 8 weeks of the training.
Keep your eye out in 2023 as we will be releasing bridge plans for situations like this but they are only up to 6 weeks. So in this situation my recommendation stands. Remember, you will have already built a good amount of fitness, so you don’t need to overdo things in that 8 week to have a good results at the second race. Those 2 weeks of rest will also be important to a good second build up.
Thanks for the advice, I’ll go for that then.
Your plan has been great for me so far, so I prefer to amend it rather than try one from other coaches.
Great news you’ll release bridge plans!
Thanks for the good work.
