Looking for some guidance regarding my upcoming race calendar which was largely dictated by covid – womp womp
I’m currently finishing up the maintenance plan and will officially start training for Ironman Cork on March 6. I do have a half scheduled for July 10th, but that can easily be absorbed in the plan itself. The fulls do seem to require more recovery – esp as I get older 🙂
Ironman Cork is on Sunday August 14th 2022
Kona is on Thursday, October 6th 2022
I had asked a similar question last year – but alas – that was a roller coaster of training, stopping, getting a new date…training again, stopping …repeat- but now the dates are even closer together than they were supposed to be 1 and two years ago and I actually think these races might really happen this year (knock on wood)
Thoughts on a 7-week turnaround? This would be my 6 and 7th ironman, 18th or 19th marathon (stand alone or part of an ironman) if experience plays a rule in any of this..
Really appreciate all of the advice on this forum – and without your plan, wouldn’t even be asking the question about Kona – so thank you from the bottom of my heart for developing these plans to help people like me achieve their dreams.
