Weekend Adventures – How to Modify Training Plan

    I’m not sure how I can modify training programs when my weekend adventures (which I always forget to record!) is mostly a short-ish hike (30 min to usually max 1.5 hours in, lower range of AeT) with a heavy pack (rope, gear, food) and then belaying (resting/Zone 1) and climbing (usually below my AeT). They are usually 5-8 hours moving time per day so they definitely tire me out. So far, I’ve been mostly missing one aerobic training, but this weekend was a long weekend, so I’m not sure what I should do.

    I now want to incorporate indoor rock climbing in preparation for the spring season, but rock climbing is very different from the functional workouts, so would love some guidance!

    Also curious about this! I skipped all cardio this week (intermediate plan) because I have 3 days of ski touring coming up this week-end! I found I was completely depleted by recovery week trying to do all the cardio plus week-end adventures.

    It’s important to take into account how much effort/energy you are expending on any additional activities and scale the next days appropriately. If you need more rest, take it! Have a look at the total planned work for the week- how much extra work are you adding in? How does that feel for you? Use that information to scale things better for yourself the following week.

    Hi, I have a question in the same topic realm: If you want to redo a training week, how can you manipulate that in Training Peaks?
    I know how to move workouts around, but not sure how to “add a week”.

    Thanks for all your time answering questions!
