When I run I find that my performance varies heavily from one day to another - sometimes I run in the forest and get so lost thinking and running I reach a neighbouring village no problem; sometimes I run for ten minutes and cannot continue. I don't eat regularly and so I suspect that's the reason - but maybe you guys have other suggestions?

I have questioned in my own mind the lack of any real efforts on the bike over the last month or more. But every time I query that, I have to have a reality check that I'm already pretty drained from this IM training volume (that I am not really accustomed to given its my first one), and that if I threw in a whole load more bike intensity, it would probably have knock on consequences elsewhere.


Swimming is the only one where I do regular intensity/interval workouts during IM training; certainly if I'm doing 13-15h a week in the last peak phase - for the reasons you state above. If I was only ever doing 9-10h a week at the most, then you can do more intensity. Depends on lifestyle too of course, work, family etc.

I guess the only place I did regular bike efforts, was when I was commuting by bike, and I'd do some hard rides home on a heavy/laden bike. Hope to do that now I'm back commuting again, and carry it through to next year...and perhaps go long again.

Training week going well but yesterday evening 15km in 27C has me feeling really dehydrated even this morning despite pints of fluid going in. And not a great deal coming out. Swapping bike for swim as a result.

9 runs totalling 86.4km in 6:06
Four rides totalling 188km in 6:27, no power though, so just HR.


Two weeks struggling with jet lag, work, school holidays etc. So:

Running 48.1km in 3:19
Cycling 79km in 2:56 180AP

Running 47.3km in 3:12
Cycling 124km in 4:32 191AP

However saturday I had a rare chance to do parkrun, ended up my 4th fastest parkrun ever, 18:37 still well behind the 17:43 PB, but given that I just ran it rather than racing it and was happy to run the 3km home 4:05's rather than being knackered suggests I had more speed to be found. So those few fast 3km's in Canada were immediate good training.

Still not much time again though this week, so likely not much again.

5 days to Aberfeldy 70.3.

I'm on a taper and it feels weird! So much free time. I know it's good for me but it feels odd not to be working out as much.

To say I'm nervous is an understatement. First go at this distance.

Did you do a pile of training in preparation?

I can echo this. Only 7hrs of training last week, and a measly 3.5hrs before the big one on Sunday. Definitely feels weird.

I'm very much up and down on the nerves front. Trying to channel my learnings from the Chimp Paradox and tell myself bad things may well happen, but if they do I will just have to deal with them at the time, and stressing about them now achieves nothing.

Yeah, but I was ancient when I did 10:00; a youngster like you, no kids, limitless training time, however.... Very Happy

I don't know about a pile. I've trained fairly consistently for the last year and followed a 220 Tri plan for the last 8 weeks. This took me up to 9 hours for the last 3 weeks with a gradual reduction over the last 2.

It's my first 70.3, I've got a time of 7 hours or less in mind. Main thing is not to go too hard on the bike and forget I've got 13 miles still to run!
