Need some advice re ironman races and, more specifically, how much it takes out of you in subsequent weeks......I know some of you are dead experienced at the full distance.
I've just started looking towards next year and listing events. Normally I don't have a problem with a run of sprint tri's every 1-2 weeks. But I really want to do a full ironman next year.
Prob is i was pretty keen to get stuck into the longest day on 18th july as it's a handy venue, easier course and cheap (in comparison!). But having checked this date I have also noticed that I have the london tri the week after - I've already spent a shed-load of cash to enter this.
So is 2 weeks enough time to recover from the ironman, and build up enough energy to put in a good personal performance in london. want to do well in both.
