I'm always training for a half marathon, which includes strength training and Zumba, about one half a month is what I like to do. And I did a full marathon 3/31/12 and my next is 10/6/12. My first tri is 9/16/12. I also have a half (Disneyland 1/2) 2 weeks before the tri. I think I want to do the Olympic. I'm looking for a Road bike, no experience here. And I'm going to start swimming next week, with a coach. No real experience here (except that I generally know how to swim and can body surf, etc- been years tho.)
I pretty much don't want to change my marathon training. But want to add the other sports along with. So- Just curious if anybody else does both and how often you swim, bike and run per week. Are brick workouts important every week or just once in a while?
Realy depends on your A-Race, the time you have to train, experience, goals, etc. Most of my IM athletes do compete in 1/2 marathons as part of a training session. I would do around 2-3 sessions per disipline. But again, there are a lot of factors. The more specific the better.
