I reckon 12 miles about now is ok, i did a 12 last sunday, i'm in the FLM.
i am trying regular racing , it is a refreshing change to endless miles & seems to help, i.e your long run could be a race, not to race it but to enjoy running with others. I have run a few 10's and is a good distance.....not too far.
This may help your motivation.
Running with music is also good.
I f you have been ill, be patient keep all runing at a comfortable pace, this will still keep your weight down, but not stress your body.
Hello, place in the London, lovely? Well it would be if the training was going o.k but it's not. tTrying a 3 days a wk training i.e Long run going o.k. up to 20 miles. 2 x speed trainging session fallen well behind schedule! Could I ease back on long runs an do smaller disance spped reps/ tempo. Not to late for a change of plan! Doing cross traing other days.
Hi BD, Great choice of challenge! Of the three discipline you need to work on your weakest. Train well , maximise your time.Try a tri club that helped me, they are dead friendly. Don´t bother with a time on the first one, practise changing from out of your wetsuit at speed, also practise running from your bike , thats well weird. I repeat this in a gym, 10mins bike then 10min run on the tread mill.Say 6 times The training is particular to this sport, and should be researched to maximise your training time available. Try to avoid just taining on the thing you enjoy!!!.Enjoy!
