My approach is indeed a FIRST type program. My previous coach used it and it seemed to work well with my schedule.

My bike workouts are actually from trainerroad. I am using the sweet spot training plan right now so it keeps your workout below threshhold. It still gives me a good workout but the intensity is low enough that it does not leave me exhausted. I have been using my run days during the week for the higher intensity workouts and the bikes as a lower intensity (generally high zone 2 to mid zone 3 hr) between running days.

While the workouts may not leave you exhausted, sweet spot riding is not easy riding so basically you are alternating hard days with medium days and this is also not a great idea.

Is there an 8-12 week plan to improve technique and strength on the bike, with some running in it as well?

Part One: On Speed, Desire and Age. There are some advantages to running slowly. Now, give me a minute here and I'll try to think of one.

Should I be working on getting faster at running by doing the longer distances and working up slowly over time or run faster for shorter distances now?

I'm too slow for some group rides and of course I want to increase it for races. What exercise/training should I be focusing on?
