The short answer is “yes”. On that week you should try to hit the event’s total vertical. However it can be more complex as the training can not so vastly exceed your capacity for this kind of work (in this case the vertical meters) that you are destroyed but that week. We offer these as recommendations but these must be tempered by your own experience. Do not blindly follow the plan off a cliff. This why we have so much information on the site and in the books about how to monitor if you are handling the training.
