Hi! It turns out my half marathon is a week earlier than I’d thought, so I’d like to shorten “Level 1 half marathon Masters” by one week. I’m on week 3, and I’d like to keep it intact through the end of microcycle 5 if I can due to a 10k goal and some travelling that’ll make training more difficult, though I could tighten it up before that if needed. What do you recommend? (I’m also doing the associated strength training — suggestions there too?)
I think maybe I’ll try to tighten the program by seven days by removing one Foundation run in seven of the upcoming 9-day microcycles in my Master’s HM program. Does that seem reasonable? I guess I’d ideally knock down a bit of the higher intensity stuff to keep it 80/20 but not sure how to best do that — decrease the interval reps by 1 on speed days maybe? My endurance level is pretty good (I did an imperial century bike ride last month) so I think I can afford to lose base building if need be and I’m not too injury prone. Thoughts welcome.
