24 Week Expeditionary Climb – mixing in smaller objectives?

    Hello everyone! Older athlete here at 56 yrs. I’m in the last 4 weeks of the 24 week training plan and the opportunity to do a couple climbs during this time have presented themselves – Mount St Helens and Mount Hood. Based on previous experience I anticipate that these will be 8-10 hour efforts with lots of Z3.
    I’m wondering how I should integrate these into these last 4 weeks. Should I continue as prescribed and substitute the weekend hikes for the climbs? Should I take a taper week before the climb and a rest week after the climb, thereby extending the plan further out?
