Training for 2 Events

Posted: 27/08/2014 at 21:56

I run mainly, marathons but also cycle and swim and have entered a half iron man next year.

I am running a marathon in the April and have the Half Iron Man in the June. I wanted to know if anyone else had done something similar and some advice on how to train for these 2 events at the same time.

I ran the ultra last year while my 2 friends ran the marathon. This year I'm doing the marathon.

I would recommend trail shoes. I found it hard but really a very enjoyable race. I'm a 3.33 road marathon runner and my pb at Beachy head was 4.12. I'm hoping for 4.5 at Bamburgh but who knows, just looking forward to a girly weekend away with a greatmarathon  thrown in the middle of it!

Hello...I have been running for a few years and completed over 14 marathons and and Ultra...I cycle and swim (in the pool)...I need a new challenge and am seriously thinking of competing in an Ironman in this too much for me?

Can anyone recommend an event for next year?

Thanks OG!
My legs felt tired from the word go! I hurt my foot before Christmas too but have been ignoring it, went to the dr's Monday, he thinks I've done something to the bone so has referred me for an x ray!
Going to take a few months off running and hopefully come back for our club half beginning of May.

You'll be fine for your 60 I'm sure of it.

I can't find you boys in FB, It's driving my mad!

I survived my first Ultra, just!
Never, ever again, it ended up being 36 miles and I didn't really enjoy it at all, couldn't see the point in running that far. It hurt so much and has taken so much out of me. I was going to pull out, but as you know by know, I don't give up!
The route was amazing and the weather was fantastic, but I found it so lonely.

It took me forever, 6 hours 27 mins. There were 49 runner's 42 fnished and I was 16th.

I've pulled out of London and don't want to run for a while!
