Hi,

I am taking parti in the Tenby Longcourse in July and wondered whether there are Longcourse specific training plans available, or should I follow a general Ironman plan?

Thanks.

Hi Nigel

Nothing wrong with following a general plan as it will get you to where you want to be.  The great thing about the long course weekend is that you can push yourself a little harder on each discipline as they aren't one after the other on the same day (obviously).

Alternatively, you could always get yourself a coach leading up to the race.  Why? because they can tailor a plan for you as an individual and your abilities compared to a general plan that assumes a lot of things that you might not be capable of or just don't have the time to train etc.. lots of things really that a coach will be able to factor into your plan.

Just a thought for you of course.
