I'm doing my first ever triathlon a week on Sunday (21st April, Ribby Hall in Lancashire, 400m swim/18k bike/5k run) and I'm wondering how much to ease off in the week before hand. I'm using the event as a warm up/practice for an OD tri in the middle of June (southport) so it's not my A race and most of my training is starting to focus on the longer distance. An average week at the moment would be around 22-25 miles running, a couple of sessions in the pool, and 60ish miles on the bike. I'm going to try and put in more miles on the bike after the sprint tri as that's my weak area, I feel more at home with the running. How much should I ease off in order to perform well a week on Sunday? My last planned long run (11miles) will be tomorrow, but I'm planning to get plenty other training in this week. My plan for next week would be something like: Mon Run - short interval session Wed Run - short and easy (would I benefit from missing this?) Thu Swim - few intervals of 100/200m Sat Possible swim? I'll probably cycle to work most days which is a 7 mile round trip but I do use it to try and build strength. Anyone got any advice/pearls of wisdom? Anyone else entered in the event?
