Yes, I would add more capacity training and leave the ME as is, especially if it’s your first time using it.
I am sure I am not alone in having had my plans for 2020 squashed. I am now concentrating on an objective in late summer 2021, and whilst I may have some lesser trips between times I want to prioritise and if necessary make sacrifices for this main trip.
Looking at the TFTNA plan there are 8 weeks transition (which I am currently back in). Then 20 weeks of base before the specific phase.
My question concerns the strength training in the base phase which has 8 weeks of max strength, and then moves in to muscular endurance for the next 12. If you have a lot more time than 20 weeks to devote to base, do you extend both these phases, or vary them according to what you perceive as your weaknesses? I think it is clear from the book that you have to train base strength before targeting muscular endurance, so do you spend all or most of your extra weeks on max strength, and leave about 12 weeks for muscular endurance?
