Your fitness has obviously improved! yay ((:
There is an art to doing your own programming. You can definitely use this plan on repeat, here are some pointers. So going back to week one of 12 might not be necessary. Just continuing say the last eight week block might be ideal, though the caution here is you do need deep recovery at times, a couple weeks off and to mix it up from time to time. So you don’t burn out or keep too high a load for too long. So if the output of the weeks for the second two thirds seems sustainable and not stressful in your day to day life go with that, but plan a couple of weeks (or more) here or there after an 8 week block where you just go do fun things without it being training so you stay fresh. If you take a longer break like that (2- 3 weeks) then you might want to ramp back up with a full 12 weeks of the program. I hope this helps! Send more questions if you have them ( :
Making your own plan after the program ends
So I’ve been training with this group since the inaugural cohort back in January and can’t believe it’s almost been a whole year! I’m looking for guidance on how to proceed on my own for a bit. Can I repeat the same plan on loop and see where I’m at after another 6 months to a year? If so, should I do the entire 3 months or the second half of it? I haven’t looked at the UA book in awhile and I’m planning on rereading it to refresh myself on the recommendations for self training. I would love to just keep going with the paid training but it was a bit of a financial stretch so I at least need a break which is not to say I won’t be back at some point. I’ve really learned a lot and enjoyed this experience tremendously. I’ve almost doubled the amount of vert that I can hike in an hour at zone 2 so I know the theory behind the training works!
