Subject: olympic 2 weeks from 1/2 ironman
I am doing my first 1/2 ironman in early October. I was wondering your thoughts on doing a Olympic distance 2 weeks before? good idea to get some race and real tri practice in? or 2 close to my A race? I have done a few Olympics this summer already.

just don't know if that is too close to my 1/2. thank you in advance for your advise.

seems perfect.  Recovery from an Oly should be ~1wk.  Since you've done a few Oly's this summer... how did fatigue linger for more than 2 weeks?

everyone is different, and you know your body the best.  I'd do it, but perhaps back off the race intensity of the Oly... just a tad.  Stay sub-threshold.

Why do triathletes need a recovery week and why do we feel so bad during it?

Is it realistic to race a sprint and Olympic distance race within 2-3 weeks of one another to gauge my progress before tackling the half Ironman?

This training plan has only 2 workouts per sport per week and peaks at 7.5 hours per week of training. Use this plan if you are time constrained or if you want to focus more on your family.

This program is a beginner plan to bridge you from an a Half Ironman to Ironman using a HRM with the confidence that you can complete the race without difficulty.

Executing this full Ironman plan for 17 weeks would give people with one Ironman under their belts very good preparation for a 2nd and 3rd. Preferably, you should have a 6:30 or faster HIM time.

This Intermediate 20 week plan is a quick ramp up in overall volume, but with 20 weeks to train only, it is a gradual and safe approach because of the alternating weeks of the long run/bike.

The schedule consists of at least 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work too. Most weeks have 4 days of cycling. The maximum volume is around 11 hours.
