I'm creating a challenge for myself that is a duathlon of sorts.
Instead of running I will be hiking/skiing.
I am using touring skis, so the ascents and descents will be all on skis.

There will be 4 bike/ski transitions.
Each ride will be about 8-12 miles of hilly roads.
Each ski ascent will be about 2 miles with a similar descent.

I have a bike trainer, treadmill, and access to all the skiing I can handle.
This will NOT be a timed event.
Currently plan to be unsupported.

Any duathlon training advice applicable here?

Biking THEN skiing BOTH UPHILL and DOWN with the use of climbing skins on the bottom of our skis.
It is much like hiking but with boots and skis on instead of carrying them on a backpack.

I've done the challenge before but we drove to each area. This year it is going to be pedal power.

If you are a person who feels safer on the trails rather than the road, but you still want to race, this article will help you better train.

After doing duathlons for the last couple of years, I decided to go for a triathlon. Starting with an Olympic-distance race perhaps wasn't wise, but it was fun (of a sort).

Is it possible for loners to work in a small group and still have plenty of time on their own? Training in small groups can give many benefits.

My first duathlon was a success. I had so many fears before the race but none of those fears happened. And when it was all over, I felt I had accomplished something big.

This program should be used for an athlete who is new to duathlon and their goal is to complete a sprint duathlon without difficulty. The schedule consists of 3 workouts per week in each sport.

Don’t forget this is an incredibly big year for sport with the Olympics back in Athens where the modern Olympics started, and especially triathlon to make its second appearance.

Bricks refer to training on two disciplines during the same workout.
