I am signed up for Olympic Distance slateman in May.
I have done two s[print Tris finishing in around1hr 36mins.
I have run for a few years now and regularly race 10km - half marathon distances. Best time for a Half is 1hr 51mins.
I am confident with my swim as train weekly and can already swim the distance.
It is the bike that needs improvement. Well not the bike, me on the bike.
Any advice for traing would be apreciated. i have a hallf marathon in march and so am struggling to fit tin the bike around that. I know that running is my favourite over cycling!
Have looked at training plans....looks like some balance 3 workouts for each discipline a week?
Anyway what I'm asking I guess is, ideas/info for training for the bike as I am clueless!!!!
Ride the bike ride the bike ride the bike. Can you get out at the weekend and get a ride in ? Do you have a turbo ? Do you have access to a gym with spin classes ?
I'd not worry about specific workouts as such - just get out and ride the bike.
How many miles a week are you running for the half marathon ? That cant take up too many hours surely ? Cycling takes longer to train than running so you need to find the time. Train your weak points.
OMG big panic attack.....was in Porthmadog last week so took the bike to Llanberis to ride up the pass there!!! Got to withing 1k of the top and couldn't go any further - more hill training for me then. Knew I should have picked the pancake falt TRI down the road in Southport for the first one!! Is bike pushing allowed?
