In response to my question about my training schedule (preparing for my
first international/olympic tri) a number of people have told me I
should have longer runs and rides. I'm generally doing 45 - 60 minute
runs on my running days and 1 hour rides on my two short days and 1-2
hours on my long day. I'm already putting in about 11-13 hours of
training a week and I just don't have much more time to spare. Would I
be better off to have longer runs or rides and sacrafice my bricks or
should I just stick with what I'm doing? I know that the bricks have
certainly improved my ability to make the transition from ride to run.
In the two months since I've started doing them I've become pretty
comfortable making the transition. In fact, I find that I run much
faster on my bricks then when I just run. I average 30-60 seconds per
On a sort of related note. I sure would like to see what some other
peoples training schedules look like. I don't know anyone outside of
this newsgroup that does tri's, so I don't really have much to compare
my training with.
