Hello out there!
I am having another question and hope for some help. As already mentioned in the topic title, it’s about vacation or unplanned occurrences during a training period or better while in the middle of a training plan.
I am still planning my race & vacation year, and as you know, the situation is still somewhat difficult and more flexibility is required to make things work.
Here now my situation – maybe other:
I’m currently in week 9 of the 70.3 Level 3 plan.
I plan a B-race in week 14, a half marathon (unfortunately virtual).
My IM70.3 is on 6/27 – so far so good.
The week after the 70.3 I will try to recover as fast as possible, no running and only some swimming and recovery rides:
Monday CRe1, Tuesday Rest, Wednesday SF3, Thursday CRe1, Friday Rest, Saturday CFF4, Sunday Strength.
As of the following Monday, I will be dive in the 70.3 Level 3 plan again and will start at week 9.
The race, another 70.3 is planned for October 2nd.
Now my question: I’m planning a shortened week of vacation which will be the week of 8/23 or better training plan week 16. I will be unable to bring my bike. As I leave on a Sunday, which is my rest day anyways and will return Friday, I will only have 5 days affected, not the brick scheduled for the end of the week.
Should I simply replace some of the biking with running? To make is easier to visualize, here the schedule for this specific week:
Sunday: Rest & travel to vacation
Monday: CF10 & RCI3 Brick – can’t do CF10/Brick
Tuesday: SCI5 & CRe13 – can’t do CRe13, should I do a RRe9 instead?
Wednesday:RAe6 & Strength (will either skip strength or do a limited one)
Thursday: SF5 & CCI15 – can’t do CCI15, should I do a run instead?
Friday: ST6 & RR34 & travel back home
Saturday: CAe8 & RAe1 Brick – ok, will be back home
Sunday: Rest and Strength
