Subject: custum plan questions
I am considering using the gold member plan for building a plan that would ultimately get me ready for Ironman Lake Placid in 2013.  If I signed up now would I be able to include a plan to get me ready for a marathon in October, then an offseason plan that would take me up to 30 weeks out from the July Ironman? At 30 wks out I would continue with a custum plan up to race date.                    If there is no marathon option available does it make sense to sign up now for an off seaon plan and continue into the regular plan for a race that is about 1 yr.away? Thanks for any thoughts..

Here's what you can do:

1 - August 2012-October 2012 (3 months)

  • Create a 3 month maintenance plan for the IM - keep it light in swim and bike (2x per week) as you will import the marathon plan below
  • Import the Silver Full Marathon Plan (this will over-right any runs imported from the above plan, which is ok)

2 - November-Jan 6 2013 (~9 weeks)

  • Marathon is over, so depending on if you have any weaknesses (swim or bike), you can create a 9 week FOCUS block to work on a weakness OR
  • Just create a maintenance plan

3 - January 6 - Jully 22, 2013

  • Create a 28 week IM plan

THINGS TO NOTE:

If this is your first IM plan, 28 weeks will be ALL build.  Play around first to make sure that a 28 week plan won't be 'too easy' once January comes around.  IF IT IS, you can add-in another 8 week round of a sport focus plan (different sport) and create a 20 week IM plan.

I have a silver membership, and am trying to import my custom plan into my training calendar.  I'm able to create the plan, but when I select the "upload" button, I get the warning about overwriting any existing plans... I select "OK", and nothing happens.  No error, no message... the plan just doesn't upload.  Any ideas?
