Mainly due to injury my training for IMA has been pretty poor. However, I am now in a position where my knee can tolerate an increase in training volume.
With IMA 8 weeks today my plan is to gradually increase long bike from around 3 hours to hopefully peak at around 5 hours in 6 weeks week time. With regards to running, its not realistic to expect to run whole marathon, so will incorporate a run/walk strategy in my training buiding up from current long run of 75 mins to hopefully a run/walk of 2.5 hours in around 6 weeks time.
Im not reaaly worried about swimming as I have done more swimming than I did last year and am swimming a bit faster too.
For those who have completed an Ironman on low volume training, is my training plan sound for a "get me round race plan", obviously not expecting peal performance .
I suspect a 10 day taper would be ok after this traing and not the normal 3 weeks would be required.
