Is it all about the numbers ? TRAINING PERCENTAGES

How do you split your training ? I read a thread that stated you can do an ironman on very little biking or swimming.

Nowt wrong with S/B/R only! I failed to mention hamstring stretches and shoulder mobilisation stretches, but these take up minimum time.

I've thrown some numbers together - if I'd swum for 3 hours per week for the last 10 weeks rather than 2, my percentages would not have differed too much (+3% on swim, -1% on bike and -2% on run). I guess my numbers were slightly skewed anyhow as I didn't swim in Feb/Mar due to a shoulder injury.

absolutely, I just seem to have injuries myself that require time off from the pool or bike and a bit o r& r in the gym! Plus I like the gym, and am currently taking part in a ''ab challenge'' ( it was me that suggested it) to see if a group of us can get anything more than the one pack I currently have!   The problem here is one of diet I think and not  a lack of muscle in there somwhere...

F.oggy, your numbers are bang on for most people on this forum , maybe a bit high on the swim, do you seriously do no other training or are these numbers just for the 3 disciplines? 

 

 

I do a couple of strength/core sessions a week in addition to my swim/bike/run.
