Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: 14/05/2013 at 11:39

This is very revealing: a thread called "Training for a Shorter Tri" and everyone seems to be signing up for Outlaw. 

Two questions:

i. Is this inevitable once you've entered the dark place that is Tri-world?

ii. Why am I looking at the Outlaw website?

Do you combine holidays with races?

Strategic error, I'd say. 

My line: "If I did the Amsterdam marathon, we could all have a nice holiday there". That went down quite well.

Structured running

You need some variety: some easier longer runs, and some shorter, faster runs. And some different routes. All of this will keep you fresh, and will probably boost your motivation.

And sign up for parkrun. Everyone should!

I would also target a race, and follow a training plan for it. Find one here: http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/smartcoach 

MBNA Chester Marathon 2013

(This is really difficult to follow - we're having a similar discussion on the RW forumites FB page as well.)

I'm following the RW 4hr15min training schedule. 4 runs a week, but I'm going to add 2 days of cross-training in as well.

Lisa - which parkrun out of interest?

 

"Two stone off" 2013

Posted: 13/05/2013 at 16:41

Well, Wilmslow Sprint Tri done yesterday. Really enjoyed it, but probably didn't press myself as much as I would in a running only event. Only now having done one do I appreciate just how dominant the cycling is in triathlon. Contemplating another sprint tri in the run up to Chester, but might delay it until next year and really focus on bike training over the winter. But the photos certainly provided more motivation for the weight loss ...hmmmmmmm.

I gave her a "C'mon pirate" shout, Matt.

Probably need to get kitted out for the next one. Anyone up for Macclesfield sprint in August? 

1st Marathon

I personally would try and find a half 3 or 4 weeks before your marathon as a tune up race, and a guide to what your marathon pace should be. 7 weeks before is a bit too much of a gap: things could change in that time.

I've yet to get hold of my pirate gear -this was my first foray into the world of tri.

 Did see one PSOF top as I was coming back up the end of the run - woman heading out on the run at about 9.55.
