I am in a Half/Full Ironman challenge for February on www.beginnertriathlete.com
. We have to post any and all our workouts on the site. Itís an online mentorship group for us newbies and I am really enjoying it.
Half Ironman Distance:
1.2 mile swim (42.25 laps in a 25 yd pool)
56 mile bike
13.1 mile run
2.4 mile swim (84.5 laps in a 25 yd pool)
112 mile bike
26.2 mile run
I opted for the Half Ironman option because I didnít think I would log that many bike miles.
I know I will most likely exceed the HIM swim and run though.
Many of us live in cold climate and are not biking outside or have an indoor trainer. One of the participants local Y is doing the same challenge and their suggestions for the biking portion is this:
Spinning or group cycling class
45 minutes = 12 miles bike
30 minutes = 8 miles bike
I spin but have no idea how far I ride or could even guess. Do you think this is a good estimate? I will be getting a trainer soon but for now I need to use something.
