I think the idea is to ensure adequate recovery between workouts which of course depends on the type of workout – e.g. max strength or muscular endurance will require much longer recovery than Z1/Z2 aerobic training.
I’ve just finished the transition period and started the base period this past Monday. Looking at the general layout of the plan I’m wondering about switching the days around a bit. If I were to swap the Steep Uphill workout (third day of the week) with the run/hike workout (sixth day of the week) it would allow me to get into the mountains for the uphill portion vs using a treadmill or box step ups. I’m just not sure how important it is to keep the exact days of the week for things and if it would be detrimental to the training.
