Focus on recovery. You’re not going to build any fitness during your week 16, as an example. Prepare with a recovery / taper week in order to be ready, if it’s going to be a difficult couple of days, and then give yourself plenty of time the following week to recovery. Reduce load by 50% and walk / jog / swim. Similarly for your October back-to-back-to-back weekends.
Overview: attached is a PDF outline of my training plan for a few upcoming objectives for late summer-fall. My primary question/s have to do with what do I do in between these “objectives.” These are weeks 17-21 in the PDF and weeks 23-28. For context, my “objectives” are NOT technical, my primary focus/goal is being able to cover ground (estimates of 10+ miles per day some on-trail and off-trail) and elevation gains/loses around 4,000 ft.
