Hello, i am looking to start cycling. i am a marathon distance runner and what to start training for a 1/2 ironman race next june. Any suggestions where i should start my training on the bike. Swimming i have a pretty good handle of; i really want to improve my biking capabilities
The one you can adhere to is the best one
You should provide a bit more detail - do you have a bike? Do you have a trainer? Do you have a speed and cadence sensor? Do you have a Power meter? What cycling equipment do you have or intend to get?
Might get you some more focused answers
I’d suggest starting with Plan Builder, by setting your target event on the calendar (which allows you to set it as a Half Distance event) and it will layout a basic plan that includes run, bike and swim workout. You can skip the swim and/or run workouts if you already like your workouts there.
But this will give you a starting framework with minimal effort.
I have a bike and indoor wahoo smart trainer. I use the trainer road app to gauge my power during my workouts. I guess because i have “so much” time to train for the event i’m not sure if i should focus more on certain parts of cycling (building up endurance or FTP, etc) before getting into a structured Half Distance training program.
I would use plan builder - put in your event for next year and it should set you all up
Just like Chad said above
