Subject: RE: Fast Olympic to 140.6 in 3 months?
Originally posted by skibummer Hi all, I'm competitve AG. At peak weeks I average about 16 hours of training (10,000yds/200mi/30mi) I am registering for a mid June 2022 Oly and hope to be top 10 overall and place in AG I would also like to do a home made self supported 140.6 in Sept. Is this crazy talk? Can I train to be fast at oly and 3 mos later crank a full? The full would be "fun" paced and possibly have a charitable/awareness type thing attached to it. I have never done a full, nor have I done a marathon before. How much will I be praying for death?
At that weekly volume, you're probably better prepared than a lot of people are.
That's enough swimming and cycling for a full, provided to concentrate some into longer sessions. You're probably a little light on the run but if you're not pushing hard then just be prepared to walk a bunch.
