How often do you race this distance? -or- What is your experience level at this distance?
Hal uses this question to help pick the right plan level for you. Hal’s plans come in Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced levels and some event distances even have 2 plans for each of those (Novice 1 and Novice 2).
There is no correct answer, but if you feel the plan is too hard or too easy for you, Hal suggests you adjust your response to this question and he will generate a more appropriate plan for you.
