    Hi,

    I am currently doing the level 2 half marathon plan.

    I have booked in a 10k B race which has been rescheduled to a non-recovery week. Sunday on Week 11 specifically.

    Do you have any reccomendations on how to best adjust the plan around this?

    So far I’ve considered a couple of options:

    A)
    Week 11
    Friday: replace RDI5 with an easy run
    Sunday: Replace RFF14 with the 10k race
    Week 12
    Replace RP10 with and easy run

    B)
    Switch week 11 and 12 around completely so that 12 comes first, meaning the race is in a recovery week.
    In this case could do similar replacing the workout before (Fri) and after the race (Tues).

    Not sure if either of these are the best way or if it’s even necessary to sub out the workout on the Tuesday in the week following the race. So would be great to know your thoughts on how to structure.

    Thanks

    Great questions!

    I think you are on track with Option A being the best way to move through this part of training. Running the 10K race in the same zones as the current plan has set would be ideal. Additionally, I don’t believe there would be any need to adjust the run the following week; however, just pick up the plan as you have it set.

    I hope that helps!
