Is it fine to combine runs together in the transition and base periods? For the first three weeks of my transition training I was doing 5 days of running:
1. Long Z1 (45min)
2. Z1 (30min)
3. Z1 (30min)
4. Z1 (30min)
5. Z2 (15min)
However, on the fourth week I ran Long Z1 and Z1 in one long run and felt pretty good about that (1h22min). Is it fine to do something like:
1. Long Z1 + Z1 (1h22min)
2. Z1 + Z1 (1h6min)
3. Z2 (16min)
This just gives me extra sleep in the mornings, but I can manage 5 days as well.
Would this have a negative or positive effects to my training (or it does not really matter)?
