I just swapped my UK 70.3 place for IM UK (can't manage 70.3 anymore due to house move). Is the bike course really that tough? I am trying to get an idea of what it might be like when compared with Austria which I did in 2013. It was 1,600m climbing and UK has 1,250m. I get the impression from folks on here that UK is pretty hard. Has anyone done both and can offer a comparison? I guess I'll be targetting hills in my training in any event...
Good luck to all with your training over the next few months.
Grateful for some help - I have a basic Tacx turbo that I use with a garmin and HR monitor. My coach has set me a target of doing a monthly TT on the turbo that involves me measuring the distance travelled in the session for comparison month to month. Can you please tell me in layman's terms what I will need to do this with minimum cost?
I do have a cadence sensor for my Garmin that I have never used but plan on putting on this week. I suspect it will not help with this though?
