I have some other comments about intensity that I may share on another day, but wanted to share this article because it provides an interesting perspective on scheduling your intensity.  It also points out that long runs are a form of intensity.

Good article Dan. Thanks for posting. If you don't mind, post up the 2nd and 3rd installments when you see them.

Thanks,

Interesting article Dan.

Just thinking out loud here. This is obviously a run plan.  So I am thinking how you might incorporate that into a triathlon training plan.

My training is built around a seven day cycle where Sunday's are a designated rest day with no formal training planned - my acquiescence to getting older and needing the extra recovery.  I try and go for a walk or bike ride with my wife but there is absolutely no intensity.  My weekly training, once I ramp up after the winter slow-down will look something like: swim x3, bike x 3-4, run x5.  According to the plan you shared the run would go to x7 setup as a 21 day cycle. I wonder how a rest day in place of an easy run might compare and I also wonder if the run plan should be separated out from swim/bike training with swim/bike continuing on a seven day cycle and the run on the 21 day cycle presented in the article.

Adding to that question, I typically build in a recovery week every 4th week where volume drops by 30-40%.  The run on a 21 day cycle would fit conveniently into that model, but I wonder if a recovery week in the run plan would be a help or a hindrance.  If a recovery week in the 21 day run plan would be a hindrance, what would NOT having a recovery week in the run plan do to the recovery week for the other two disciplines?  Would skipping the recovery week in the run cycle effectively negate the recovery week for swim/bike?

Curious what you guys thoughts are.
