I am curious for those of you on the typical Saturday/Sunday longer bike/brick/run cycle regards swim workouts and your preference for which day to bike vrs. run. I have finished the 12 weeks of SS base and have used Plan Builder for an off-road triathlon in May. Looking at the plan made me think again about these two questions I have wondered about.
Do any of you do a hard swim workout on the weekend? I mean a regular swim workout, not just a shorter recovery. For me that is very hard to to do. If nothing else, going to a pool takes quite a bit of time out of the weekend after longer cycling or running also. I have access to a great pool that opens at 5:30 am M-F but not until 9 am on weekends which is another issue for me.
Do you have a preference for which weekend day you bike vrs run? Or do you think it really doesn’t matter? My plan has a Saturday bike and a Sunday run. A few years ago I had a coach who always had me run on Saturdays. But he also coached elite marathon runners and was perhaps somewhat run centric I think.
Thanks for any thoughts and opinions!
