I can see no reason why they should have traithlon plans. It's a running magazine. There are plenty of plans around and anyway these are just guides.

I dont think that RW should really go down this route.

It should stick to its core subject and if you want tri advice go to a tri specific site (of which there are loads)

I agree with Gumps - leave RW to the runners - but thank them for having this oddball forum where a lot of us live

I think they should have Modern Pentathlon training plans as there is a large running element.

Tripetalk is just that EP - full of nerdy triathletes talking out of their bums about training.........this forum is full of runners having a larf at triathlon without been too serious (with a few exceptions) like the TT lot - fine people as many of them are.........(and a few of us also inhabit that from time to time)

I think you could maybe have an idiots training guide for first sprint. But there are also so many variables. For example Alice has never run before but is a good swimmer planning on doing a super sprint versus Oxy who is fat and unfit and wants to do an Ironman.............

"Oxy who is fat and unfit and wants to do an Ironman"

is that the same fat and unfit Oxy that did IMCH last year???

Pix, the problem would be that the pirates know more about Tri that RW. Maybe Danny-bhoy can start writing some articles??

As for where to send you... depends what you want to know.

Training plans for tri are more complex than running to some extents due to the 3 different disciplines. What you need to do depends upon how good you are at each event, distance, aims etc.

I really wouldn't get hung-up on training plans unless you're serious about it. Until then just enjoy the 3 disciplines and enjoy the events. When you're getting somewhere then join a club, speak to a coach and work out a plan.

If in doubt follw the Candy Plan (TM)
Run a lot, cycle a lot, swim a bit.

ooooh, what a coincidence!

Do each thing a couple of times a week and if you get bored don't do one for a bit
13/06/2006 at 14:12
EP - you could always - if you want a laugh and learn a whole new tri language - try


I get baffled over there
