hello,

I was wondering how to follow lets say an 18 week olympic distance
training schedule if a regular easy week for me starts in week 6.
should i cut down to a 12 week program or should i supplement those
extra six weeks with more training or should i start from week 1 as
the program says.

thanks

How about prorating out the training program.  For instance if the highest
volume week in the program is 12 hours of training and you are figuring on
doing 20 hours per week, pro rate the volume out so that your largest volume
week is the same week as the peak volume week(s) in the program.  You will
also need to adjust the volumes throughout.

It can be done.  I recently did it for a marathon training program that I am
considering (of course doing it for one discipline is easier than 3).
