I couldn’t work it out either regarding the brick session.

It says 1:15hr brick so I would do 1hr bike and run 15min

Hi Rik

Sounds like you have a plan already and key really will be to rest wheb body asks for it and dont forget to include strength training. I dont have experience in a double IM, best guess is pacing and nutrition. Good luck and keep the enjoyment.

I would say there is a way, depends on when the ultra running race takea place. Either way your fitness gains from the running and the triathlon training will compliment each other. I think key will be not overtraining or picking up injury most likely from too much running. For example you dont need to run a marathon in training for ironman due to risk of injury and recovery. The period between the half and full distance is most important and I would think no long run events is advisable.

 I dont run very well but I would say cycle more as that lends itself to running. Split your weekly training in proportion to your estimated times for the 70.3. If you already have a good run I think the key will be to see how you feel running of the bike.

I also did weymouth 70.3 as first experience before entering Ironman Switz following July. All I did was 4 hours week as a winter pre training start. 6months out I averaged 7hours week for a 20 week training plan.

Completed first ironman 13:55hrs so plenty of time and I had puncture.

All I would say is do the full swim in a pool and see how it feels, work upto the full bike during training plan and dont run further than 21km as longest run, the run hammers the body well at least for me it does. Throw in a few shorter local races and another half distance 12 weeks in. these give you small milestones to look forward to and try your shiny new gear. You will smash it!
