Hello all so i will get to the point, im 36 dad of 2 young ones, and after doing blenheim last year as my first and only event i decided to focus on family until this year as baby was only young. Flash forward and shes now nearly a year old so i have a litle more time and sleep :).
I trained for the sprint and Blenheim for around 18 weeks and had no real plan i just tried to ride 2-3 times and run 2-3 times, swim 1-2 a week. I managed to do it in 1 hour 36, 6mins off my target.
Anyway all training went out of the window and i have gone from a 4:50min/km run to a 6min/km, and my bike fitness has probably suffered as much.
Have started ramping up this week with 29 weeks to go until i do Blenheim spint again i was planning to work up to the same as last year but then follow a structured plan once i get to 20 or 12 weeks (depending on what plan i find). The catch is i am planning to also do London Olympic, around 9 weeks later.
So my main question is, Should i train for olympic distance now or train for sprint and switch it up for the 9 weeks before next race? My limited knowledge is telling me to train for 1500/40/10 now, but i am a noobie and thats why i a here.
Sorry for the wall of text, my typing is bad. But il try my best.
