Going to sign up next week. Look forward to using the plan builder to structure the next 30 weeks to get ready for my first ironman.
Been watching a lot of videos and reading a lot of reviews and one thing I’m wondering is should I inertial the ironman training plan or a dedicated cycle plan and add the swim runs to the calendar manually?
My thinking behind this is that I’m already a fairly accomplished runner and I know the weekly swim workouts that will be required so would I benifit from just implementing them myself?
What I need from the plan is more of a template structure from the swim and runs and then utilise the bike workouts given by trainerroad. Which option would best suit my needs? I’m thinking of addining longer sessions throughout the plan as and when tine allows but hope this won’t have a negative effect on the plan?
Hope this makes sense
