    Hi all – I am currently training for my 3rd 70.3. In the next year or so,I plan to complete a marathon then switch back to 70.3 before moving up to a full Iron distance. Should I be concerned about losing significant swim/cycling fitness in the ~5 months where I will be focused on running?

    If your marathon training block falls well before your next 70.3 training block this shouldn’t be an issue. If you plan to do your 70.3 very close to finishing your marathon then it would be advisable to add in some bike and swim sessions to your run plan to maintain specific fitness for these 2 disciplines.
