Loving my Ironman Level 1 plan, adapted as best as possible with COVID restrictions in the UK and progressing far better than I thought possible!
I’m working towards the Full Distance Outlaw triathlon which is still scheduled for the 25th of July – the way things are it looks like it will actually be happening.
However the date was changed of the Middle Distance triathlon I had also signed up for, which is now on the 20th of June. This gives me 5 weeks between the 2 efforts.
My plan is designed around the Full Distance event and I haven’t considered adjusting any of it yet to include any tapering for either event.
I would love some advice on how best to go about this. My goal for the Middle will be to enjoy being back racing, so no real pressure. I’ve never done a Full Distance before so I would like to be as fit and fresh as I can get before that.
I’m due to start the Race-Specific phase next Monday.
Yes, the plan is aligned with the iron-distance event. The middle was originally scheduled for 20th May so I wasn’t overly concerned about working around it. However with the date change of the shorter event, I assume I need to figure out some adjustments in order to taper for the middle distance, then use the 5-week gap to recover and taper for the iron distance.
