5 In a Row @ IMUK 5/26

Rookie Goes for 5 in a row @IMUK Week 5 of 26


Training for Ironman can be really complicated, but it doesn’t need to be that way….

Case in point, I’ve seen a few posts lately from first timers detailing their extremely complex training schedules, multiple sessions per day full of zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 3, Zone 4, lactate threshold, vo2 max & FTP…..

I’ve got to be honest, I look at these really complicated plans and formulas and i’m like….

Chill out a bit son…..

It’s meant to be fun you know…

My training at the minute involves nothing more than cycling to and from work, 26 mile a day, 130 miles per week, with the odd 10k run thrown in of a Sunday for good measure….

Simple as that….

And u know the best bit?

Will it be enough?

Time will tell my friend……

Time will tell…..
