6 weeks- Still motivated
Surprisingly I find myself quite motivated after Ironman Canada. But what do you do with only 6 weeks between ironman events. In my estimation not much. It’s a tricky time frame, barely enough time to recover, not really enough time to settle back into training. In my estimation, i think it is a perfect amount of time…..5 weeks too little, 7 weeks too much. I think it’s possible to pull off two good Ironman races in this time.
2 weeks completely off
2.5 weeks of regular training with key workouts only on the bike and run and increased swim volume as well as 1 week heat acclimation before heading
10 days to acclimate, couple more key sessions, keep swim volume and intensity up.
The only question remaining is how to manage the two weeks between Hawaii and Xterra.
