Hi, I’m new around here and I’m thinking about starting using trainerroad. Quick question: is there a plan for Ironman like distances that include running and cycling but no swimming? Or how can you modify an ironman triathlon plan like just skip the swim days without replacing them with anything else?
Thanks a lot!
Below I’ll write a few more info into why I’m looking to skip swimming:
I’m a 44 years old “former” triathlete doing mainly IM distances. My personal best is a 9:25 race, but that was a long time ago, in 2013. After that I kept on running/cycling occasionally, had a kid, and lacked the motivation, and usually preferred to go on vacation with my family over traning hard.
Enter Covid-19, and going on vacation has become pretty difficult (I’m Italian) and so I found myself traning a lot more than the past years but swimming has become offlimits. Also, I prefer to train alone at least until a vaccine program is in place so I want to just run and cycle for time being.
