Uk iron distance reccomendations 2016

Cotswold 226 is iron distance. Comes highly recommended from me, grass roots type event and organisers go out of their way to provide/support you.

2 weeks between IM's - just too close

Posted: 20/08/2015 at 13:38

I think there are many different perspectives on the question and the answer.

What is recovery, is it to close, impact on the 2nd race vs expecations, relative effort and speed at each race and many other race day factors.

I responded with my own perspective and experience. 

Something I should add is that in 2011 (betwwen 2010 & 2012 when I did back to backs) I DNFd the 2nd Ironman 8 weeks after the preceeding event. 

Lack of fitness played a part in 2012, less margin for error when things didnt go well on the 2nd race.  It wasnt entirely fitness though, I had nothing in my legs from the start of the bike, this could have been underlying fatigue that had somehow carried from 8 weeks previously?

I have DNF'd the triple and the double, it seems neither are blagable on limited training

That said I might give it another go one day just to be sure

It was IMDE then Roth in 2010, in 2012 I did Coeur D'Alene then Outlaw a week later.

Ive done IM two weeks apart and on consecutive weekends, on both occasions the 2nd event was faster, and that wasn't for holding back on the first event.  The one two weeks after the preceding event is still my PB.

Some people do IM's on consecutive days (double, deca, etc).

It depends what you want from it, what you enjoy, I enjoy participating and not chasing times. 

You need to think about what you want, e.g. will your head be in it for the 2nd event, its a long day if you don't want to be there. 

I wouldn't approach it as taking the first event easy in the hope of setting a time at the 2nd event, or if the 2nd was you A race.  If the 2nd race if for fun then go for it.

Now that the dust has finally settled on 'The Longest Day', i'm feeling a little lost now that direction and focus is no longer there. I know my friends all feel the same and i think we'd like somewhere private to have a chat.

Infact if there is anyone who is feeling the loss of a recently departed finishing line, take a deep breath, lie down on ze couch, and.........................relax.


Thread's just passed its 9th anniversary, perhaps we should have a 10th year reunion booze up at the end of July next year
