I’m trying to plan out my 2022 season. My main A race is Ironman Tallinn on 6th August. I would like to do a marathon early in the year and at least one HIM.
In terms of the marathon I was looking at Manchester marathon on 3rd April. In terms of planning that. I will probably buy the level 3 marathon pack and use that up to the marathon and throw some cross training in there as part of it. I will then use the Ironman Level 2 (which I own) and start on week 5 and skip week 7. Is that a sensible approach?
Then I know the optimum time to do a HIM B race is week 16 of the plan. Annoyingly I would quite like to do the Staffordshire 70.3 but this is at the end of week 15, is there an easy way to make this work? Otherwise I will try and find a non-branded 70.3 to do the following week?
