When you say all cycling will be done on a turbo, do you mean the 3hr bike would be on the turbo, from my point of view you need to be doing some intervals on the turbo sessions, you are not going to get as much value from doing endurance on there.

Hi Susan, are you looking to continue doing sprint triathlons? You need to add some intensity in to your training if you want to improve your times. There is also evidence to show that as we age, doing higher intensity exercise helps to increase fitness more than doing lots of distance so I would definitely recommend adding some interval work in to your sessions, and increasing the frequency of your swim and bike sessions if you have time. You will need to make sure that you recover from these sessions too, (it takes a little longer as we get older!) Lifting weights is great, as bone density also decreases as you age, especially in females doing some weight bearing exercise helps with this.

Ironman Wales is a great race, you will love it! It will be challenging to fit your training in with twins, but achievable. Make sure everyone knows what training you need to do and try to sit down to plan how it will happen together, (this may be quite hard to do, but worth it) you may need to get a bit creative with your training by running to meet your family somewhere, or cycling to meet them then cycling back on family days out. Make sure you get enough rest too, life with small children (I'm assuming they are still pretty young from your post) is tiring!
