I want to do a training plan but they all include weekends which I can’t do. Can I do anything about this?

Hello Cody,
I wanted to confirm if I should be picking the training end date as the Race day or have the program end sometime sooner. I have a 1/2 IM distance (70.3) race on July 10th. and want calendar both the pre-training week and the 12 week program correctly. Can you advise?

i ride the GF La Marmotte on 27the June 2021.
Because its the first time that i use The Sufferfest as a training app i started in the month of december with the granfondo trainingsplan .
The schedule will end on 14/03.
Is it better to stop it now and start with the All Purpose plan and start again with the GFplan 12weeks before the start of the Granfondo?

Hey, if you are on a plan which ends with an event putting the race day in will work just fine as we have a taper week in the final week.

Hi Christophe,
if you are midway through a plan, I recommend seeing it through for the full 12 weeks.
You will then still have time so can jump on another plan to work on your climbing for example?


Hi Cody, I have some questions about polarized training within de Sufferfest trainingplans. Where can a start a topic or find one concerning this subject?

Hey @Ludi_van_den_Bergh,
I’m sorry that I missed your message here. Here is a topic that is started if you want to continue the conversation there or you can start a new topic. I’d put it in the training category when you create the post.

In my efforts to drop a bit of weight I am calorie counting. Having just finished the "weeks with Ian and Neal’ (which were great) the calorie count was significantly lower than that shown on my Polar Ignite watch. Which do I believe?

I just did the Full Body Strength Level 2 and have been sore in my legs for a few days now. Have done two days of easy spins to help flush my legs but still sore. Any suggestions to ease the soreness?

Hello @twalker1 Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is common and can be worse when returning or starting out a new routine. Your 20-30 minute easy spins will help but you could do some stretching and foam rolling as well. Check out a few of the basic yoga sessions. Keep up your fluid and electrolyte intake.

Happy Training!

I am currently running the all purpose road plan after completing the halfmonty and am on week 5. All of the workouts were really hard at first but I have adapted and now the workouts are relatively easy. I don’t have another fitness test for another 3 or 4 weeks. Should I keep doing the workouts even though they are easy or should I just go ahead and perform another fitness test? If I do perform another fitness test, will my workouts in the rest of my plan update to my new fitness numbers?
