So I’m entered. (Via deferral) to compete in Ironman Lanzarote next May. Thanks to Covid in my area I still can’t access a pool and am not a great athlete in the cold. I’ve therefore tried to move almost all my training indoors which means my focus is really just bike and strength right now.
Knowing that this is a super hilly course (unlike most other triathlons) on the bike, I noticed a lot of the triathlon plans don’t actually focus as much on sweetspot and threshold efforts and I’m not the best climber. Equally the run is completely flat and all in the road (thankfully in the heat). How have any of you adapted your TrainerRoad triathlon plans to accommodate the specifics of your race? Would you choose a pure cycling plan to target the challenges of the bike rather than a generic plan?
