Now that Tokyo is done and my marathon goal totally smashed it is time to fully focus on Ironman 70.3 Mallorca. The plan is to increase the bike mileage and intensity and build up the swimming whilst reducing the amount of running in comparison to recent weeks.
This is the third of my four weekly training updates on the road to Ironman UK & Wales. This one is going to be slightly different than most of my updates as I am running the Tokyo marathon right on the last day of this four week block.
Into the second marathon of training for this years triathlons. I was looking to build on a good start in the first four weeks and hopefully push on a little, still the main focus is preparing and getting as ready as I can for Tokyo in March.
This is the first instalment of my 2019 triathlon training recap, where I intend to write a four weekly blog covering how the training has gone during that period. There is no set end date for this other than renaming to 2020 triathlon training if it runs into next year.
This is my first cycle sportive and at 70-miles, the longest single ride I have done to date. I was cycling with a friend from work who is a very experienced and great cyclist so have a read how we got on with the Cheshire Cheetah
