Have you tried googling? Apologies if you have already done this, but you have not said
What distances will you be doing?
Where are you with your cycling/running experience? Are you beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I've tried having a look but there are some many it's confusing me a bit.
I would say i'm intermediate, i can run half marathons & cycle a good 30-40 miles, but i haven't done a duathlon yet so i'm not sure where to start with training.
You're basically there then. Most of the training plans seem to be aimed at complete beginners, which you're not. Your best bet is to just do one, just to give you an idea of what they're like, then you can tailor your training to suit. Most 'standard' duathlons are 10k run/40k bike/5k run, although shorter 'sprint' ones are available. If you can run half marathons you can knock one of those off no bother.
Which one have you entered?
Don't forget to come back and let us know how you get on
Hi, I did my 1st sprint duathlon this year.
I was in a similar position of running half marathons & being able to cycle 30-40 miles.
I didn't have the most specific training plan. I just continued my general cycling/running training but just added a few brick sessions to get used to the feeling of running straight from the bike.
I just used google and picked a distance. Think it was 1m run/3m bike/1/3/1
Then about 3-4 weeks before I had a go at the race distance 5k/22k/5k
I'm doing a duathlon in Braintree on 7th October, it's 4km/20km/4km so a good distance to start with i think.
Thanks for you advice, i need to stop over analysing it and getting myself confused!
As Cheerful Dave said - " Your best bet is to just do one". so hope your event goes well.
I'm doing the Thruxton Mass Attack - 5km/30km/5km on 21 October, with the same intentions.
