    Hi all,

    Please critique my plan.

    My main goal for off season is building bike ftp but I want to maintain run and swim at decent levels.

    So, I’m planning to do 40K Time Trial/FTP Boost Level 1 plan (5 cycling sessions per week).

    Supplementary, I will aim for:

    – 2 master class swim sessions (mainly technique orientated but with some Z3 work at the end)

    – 2 endurance orientated run sessions [1 in the form of a brick workout (20-30 minutes) and 1 stand-alone session of 40-60 minutes max (or, if the energy level will be low, replacing an easy ride workout)].

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    After some thinking about this, I came up with another idea, simpler and easier to implement without affecting 80/20 ratio.

    Maybe it is better to level up to a Level 2 or even Level 3 FTP boost plan and replace some easy ride sessions with swim and run (cross training).

    Marius, you’re right on with your second suggestion. Your first is a great idea, but then you have to calculate your 80/20 ratios on your own as you add workouts. Since you are going to add 4 workouts a week to the Level 1 plan, might as well get the Level 3 plan which already has more workouts built in, and more workouts for you to replace with swim and run.

    You can replace any ECZ bike ride in your plan with a swim or run.
