Minimum training for running & cycling

Posted: 12/11/2015 at 08:04

Alternate weeks \ weekends .... so one weekend it's a long run, next weekend it's a long ride. (and potentially similar for the shorter stuff during the week)

I do alternate weekends for my long runs now (more of an injury prevention thing) so on my 'shorter' weekend I can get in a long ride instead (when I am actually training on the bike  ) and it seems to work ok.



Warm up

Just a quick question as what you do do as a warm up before going for a run.

I really can't believe that on this forum of all places no one has yet replied :

Swim and bike !

UK Full Distance in August 2016?

There is the Ultimate Triathlon, in Whitchurch which is normally around the middle of August.

I did the half last year, which is on the same day, and it's pretty well organised.

How do you fit it all in?

Can you combine some sessions with 'normal' activities , for instance, I commute in to work 3 times a week (when training that is) .. 10 miles each way, so if I put some hard efforts in on some of those, and extend one by another 30 minutes or so it covers my midweek cycling requirements.

Also we have a wetroom in work so it means I can get out to run at lunch times aswell which again takes care of the midweek stuff without any impact to my family.

Unfortunately though, the weekend long stuff there is no getting round .. it's make friends with stupid o'clock I'm afraid !

An awful lot of people follow the Don Fink plans and swear by them, but for my first I loosely followed this one and it seemed to serve me ok.
