I was looking at getting a triathlon training plan in the calendar, but came across a glitch (I think…) with the plans.
I’ve looked at the sprint and olympic distance plans and they work towards the final day being your event. That’s perfect and exactly what I was hoping for, but… if I add strength in to the plan, it suddenly shifts the focus and it ends with a testing week instead?
I’d like to run the plan, with strength training, but have it geared towards finishing with my event. Is this an error on the way they are set up, or have I missed something?
I hope you had a great season last year. I’ve posted and had some great answers from the Wahoo team on this subject. Since your post (like right after it) they released SYSTM and have done some pretty significant upgrades to the Multisport training plans. It USED to be that if you added strength, the plan was a not-ending-on-race-day plan (e.g. preseason) and without strength the plan would end on race day.
With the update, now you have the choice for a pre/off-season plan and a race prep plan, and you can add strength/yoga/mental to either. So, big improvement IMO, keeping strength in the plan is good for staying physically strong in all aspects through race day.
