Can I seek some advice on how to make the transition from marathon training to triathlon training please? I completed the London Marathon on Sunday and am booked into a Familiarisation Camp for the 70.3 distance at Wimbleball on Saturday. I will miss the swim but be able to attend the bike (half of the course) and run sessions (a third of the course).
To my eternal shame, I have not done any triathlon related training yet and have my first race, a standard distance tri in less than 5 weeks', before the HIM 4 weeks' after that.
I am unsure how to adapt the schedules out there to incorporate recovery from the marathon and the short timeframe. Most schedules seem to be a minimum of 12 weeks and I am unsure which weeks to miss out.
I have done some sprint triathlons although this was in 2008 before I had my last baby. The marathon has been my first endurance event so I do not have a background in endurance racing. I am just a keen runner!
Many thanks for any advice.
