    Training for the running leg on a Tri

    gday gents..

    training for a running leg on a triathlon coming up.. distance is 8kms.. have a team organised and im doing the running leg.. event is on the 2nd of December

    training program for this is below - only decided to do it today so i havnt started it yet but will start next week.

    Monday (4-5 hours after weights)
    Treadmill - 60mins at a jogging pace

    Tuesday (early morning... 3:30am)
    Outdoor fartlek session:-
    - 20 min run
    - followed by 10 mins uphill sprints
    (Taper the run down by 1 min/week and add an extra 1 min of hill sprints)

    Wednesday (4-5 hours after weights)
    Outdoor run (midday - to train my body for the heat) - 30 mins

    Thursday
    Rest

    Friday (4-5 hours after weights)
    Treadmill starting at 10km's (ascending 3km's per week to get the distance up)

    Weekend
    EAT LIKE A MOFO!! & rest


    too much? not enough? i currently do barely any running so its got to be a quick progression otherwise i won't get the fitness up enough to be able to do it.

    also how far out do i taper the training down? 2 weeks? 4 weeks?

    i know my bulking will have to be put on hold but i want to do this just to prove to myself that i can.

    cheers in advance guys.. i know this isn't exactly your forte' but i hope you boys can help me as you always do.

    Re: Training for the running leg on a Tri

    no bites so i assume either no one cares or no one has knowledge on this area.. but anyway ill bump it and update it anyways..

    the tri has dropped down to a short tri so im only doing a 3km run.. so focusing on short distance at a faster pace.. mainly doing intervals and high rep ranges for legs once each a week, as well as a 3km run to monitor my time.

    you should still get a run of upto 5 k in there about 80% of race pace and on other day train at 3 k at near race pace


    if your doing the rest of the TRI you will be tired from swim and bike so will need extra CV for running leg
