Subject: Gold plan vs Free plan...

I went the gold route and setup a beginner HIM plan ending in September....

The start of the plan seemed a bit light so I just compared it to the free HIM plan.

Free him plan has 23 hrs on the bike the gold plan 10hrs....

Less than half the volume????

The biggest month the gold plan generated 19 hrs on the bike, is this really a valid plan?

Monthly hours:

Free plan   Gold Plan  
BikeRunSwim BikeRunSwim
23139 1074
23138 1193
22119 19135
251310 19155
1588 19145

Is this plan in your planned training log?  If so, what are the date ranges?  I will take a look at it.

Also, what 'level' did you choose?  Beg, Int or Advanced?

Yes its my current active plan....

More info... Its a beginner plan and I made an error I compared it to the Free HIM plan not the Free beginner HIM plan (I did not scroll down far enough in the free plans to realize there was both a HIM and an beginner HIM)

Comparing beginner to beginner they seem much more similar. so there really isn't an issue. Thanks for the quick response.

For the gold plan I like the fact that is has a full distance bike ride and a full distance run as going into the HIM without having done the full distance would be psychologically harder...

I also realize that the Free beginner HIM plan is very Swim focused and in setting up this gold plan I chose to only do 2 swim workouts as I'm completely ok with my current swim ability  and comfortable with OWS and still have 20 weeks to go.

The overall goal is to run the HIM on my 50th birthday. I've swum and run the distances, my major focus for now is on the bike. (42 miles is my longest ride)

Allright, not a problem.  Let me know if you need anything else.

Comparing the volumes of the Silver plan and the Gold HIM plans could be like apples to oranges like you mentioned, if you aren't comparing plans with the same s/b/r per week, it's going to be hard.
