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.
Now that Ironman is in the past it is time to get cracking with marathon training once again. My two autumn marathons in Chicago and New York City are fast approaching and I have some BIG goals to hit this year.
So its finally here, RACE MONTH!!! this is the update from my two final weeks of training and how the calf injury has progressed, plus an update from Ironman on the route.
The final full month of training before taking on Ironman UK in July. This month saw me complete my first Ironman event in Staffordshire as well as a family holiday in Menorca, a good week of relaxing and resting up ready for the big day.
After mostly concentrating on running during April, this month is all about build up the biking and swimming once again. I have four running races and one 300km cycle sportive to help keep the training interesting.
Just two months until Ironman Staffs 70.3 and three until the big one, Ironman UK. April has been the month I have been building up to since starting back in November, two marathons.
