Hi all,

I don't know if anyone else is following a structured plan this year - though we might talk about it on a thread, see the challenges, successes etc. as they occur.

I've just started the Trainerroad base plan for full iron distance. Followed by the build and speciality plans takes me right up to Ironman UK 2017.

Week one has been hard so far as I've been lazy and ill up until last Sunday. Got the pain cave set up and kit organised, so tired today fell asleep as soon as I got home. Had to force myself up to eat dinner and type this post Wink

Here's to feeling tired all the time for the next six months!

Yep, i've written myself a plan for VLM that 'officially' starts on 30th January, just need to start the buld now. Then will switch to a different hills based training plan after the mara.

Good luck!

Ha, ha.

I'm struggling already - 2.5hrs in the garage on the turbo doing "Big Squaw" to do today or I'll be off plan!

Switching in the road bike to see if it's more comfortable.

I've already realised that 75 minute on the turbo is a lot harder than the 120min commutes I was doing last year.

Yes and No
Yes as in I've got a plan
No as in sometime in late January I'll say "f@ck it" and do what feels best.

Usually turns out ok

Starting trainerroad full distance base tri plan from tomorrow. Will do the mid volume plan but running will be my own thing; 2/3 runs per week based on how I feel. Aim for the next few months is not get injured. I'll think about getting wet in a few months.

Cool - the runs and swims seem to be fairly easy so far RPE 4-6 in the first week with some intensity on one run next week iirc.

Had a cross country race at Minnis Bay today instead of my Recovery Run - oops(!) not sure I'll make the swim tonight, but the bike has been solid and hard all week.

Looks like doing I'm the same.

Trainerroad Full distance mid volume for Ironman Bolton.


Taking a bit to get back into training again, I find that I am pretty tired by the end of the day, and that I need to eat a lot more just to keep up with the calories I am burning. Using my fitness pal to track calories (calorie limit is set to loose weight too!!!)

Last week I skipped big squaw (too tired, will do that this weekend)

But so far all this week everything has been good.

I'm doing the Trainerroad bike base high volume and then starting the Trainerroad Full distance programme from March. I'm undecided on the low, mid or high volume at the moment though. Hopefully this will enable me to "finish" Tenby in September. The trainerroad bike workouts look quite gentle but they really are deceiving and hurt like hell Shocked

Legs feeling it after upping the intensity this week. Run and swim has been easy so far.

Going to retest FTP and recalculate paces for the run and swim RPE levels too.

Just done my first Trainerroad FTP - very pleased with 285W FTP. I did a negative split with 296W for the first 10 mins and 306W for the second half

Very nice - that's roughly my target ftp, 270-280.

I've just retested and it's raised me from my 'still ill' level 173 to 191....a long long way to go(!)

Much more comfy on my road bike too.

I've got my first sprint in May and am currently following a plan that has 3 runs, 3 bikes and 3 swims per week.

I also go to the gym 3/4 times a week for strength training. I use the treadmill for some of my runs as well.

Background: Always been a (mediocre) runner and cyclist, swimming's the issue!
