    Hi,

    Last year I used Level 2 70.3 from the book and finished with PR of 4:49. I will like to improve this year but also race 2 70.3, first of them will be a B race on 8-Oct and second one the A race on 3-Dec.

    2 Questions:

    1. Should I use Level 3 over Level 2 or better repeat same Level?
    2. How can I fit both races? Should I sart the plan finishing in my A race date and just fit the B Race in? Or what advice you can give?

    Thank You

    M,

    Because the two events are 9 weeks apart, you can actually treat them both as A races. Sure, one race is more important to you than the other, but in terms of tapering and planning, both can be treated as an A race.

    In regards to Level 2 or 3, the answer should be based on which plan you can adhere to. Even if you aspire to Level 3 performance, if you can’t meet the demands of the Level plan it won’t work. It’s better to meet 95% of the. Level 2 plan than 90% of the Level 3 plan.

    You can also certainly improve repeating the Level 2 plan.

    Thank you David.

    In that case the suggestion will be the plan with final date on the firts race and then repeat last 8 or 9 weeks??

    Exactly. I’d even take a week off after the first race, then load the plan again with an end date of the second plan, and let TP automatically load the remaining weeks.
