I feel like a total amateur! You guys are putting in some serious training time.

I'm currently on track to log 7 hours this week.

Looking over my log for the last few weeks, realistically, this will reach around 10 hours by the end of the year.

Gradually increasing time and distance to avoid injury.


Don't get sucked into the Strava-type worry when you see everyone seemingly banging out loads of training. I see plenty of this, with people getting very fit very quickly ... and then getting injured. Or they are making large sacrifices in other aspects of life.

If 7 hours a week is the time you have available at this point, don't sweat it and just aim to be consistent. For 6.5-7 hours a week you could say do a 1 hour decent turbo session, a 2.5 hour hard ride, a 1 hour tempo/interval running session, 1 hour-90 min long easy run, 1 hour swim.

You could then tweak as required - e.g. bin off the swim and do another run instead Smile

Given you're aiming for 70.3 next year, and easing off the running, you can get lots of quality turbo sessions in as you are and a bit of swimming, and gradually swap some cycling for running as you get injury-free.

If you manage a consistent 7 hours per week between now and next summer, you'll be in decent shape. Just be prepared to be patient Smile

Soooo, finished the week on 7 hours.

Interesting looking back, can really see where I can improve the quality of what I've done. This, in turn, will increase time spent.

I've enjoyed my first bit of consistency since London marathon I would say! Iíve put in a decent, structured, but flexible 6 weeks together, including a lighter week last week to allow the body some time to recover. Iím trying to build my programme around a few key sessions a week, and then padding that out with whatever I feel like or can fit in around a job that is getting ever busier, a wife that is getting ever more impatient with the slow progress on the little oneís new bedroom in the house (haha Ė man I hate DIY!!) and the good stuff of not training i.e. spending time with my family.

I am feeling much happier, motivated and balanced compared to my experiment at the start of the year. The more I look back to that, I think it was just classic overtraining! Hopefully this can continue for the next couple of months into my early season ĎAí race in Feb. Itís a total step into the unknown, but Iím feeling excited for it, and I think that is worth a 1,000 hours of slogfest training.

I have a cracking training run planned with a group of friends this Friday, running the second half of the two moors way, hopefully around 100km or so, including the big overnight section. Ticks all the boxes of specificity for my event Ė time, distance, terrain, weather, conditions, sleeplessness, fatigue etc, and plenty of time to recover after.

Letís hope the mojo hangs around and the training continues!!

Nice one Gingerbongo.

This will be my 3rd full week of being back on what I class "proper" structured training. Feeling fitter already, need to sort out my nutrition and stop with the junk calories now.

As this is week 3, next week I'm going to reign it in a bit and do that very month from now on. Basically a 4 week cycle with every 4th week being easier.

200 watts for 4 hours 1 min.....
Amazed at how easy the first three were, horrified at how hard the last one was....
The move to full distance will need some work.

Rosey having a recovery week will pay dividends.

Sprained my ankle walking in the woods in the dark last night - doh. It's amazing how much you can't do when walking is off limits.

Thinking about the other thread, maybe there's something you could take for that Twisted Evil

I ruptured ligaments and broke my thumb in August and had 6 weeks off during which I went on an all inclusive holiday, you can probably guess the result.
Not long after the OK for my thumb my other half had a car accident (everyone was fine) but she's lost her confidence driving so I'm doing lots of ferrying around in the evenings at the moment.

Aaaaanyway, after getting all my excuses in I need to get my ar5e back in gear and put some consistency in this side of Christmas if I'm not going to leave myself a mountain to climb next spring. Fessing up on here may be that little extra push I need.

Last week 1 Run (11km), 2 Swims (4800m), 3 Bikes (91km) plus 3 days bike commuting (33km)
