Finish my first base but got sick on the easy week, which I lost swim time. Time to rethink my Half Ironman training plan. Many call for 3 hard/build weeks and 1 easy week but that doesn’t work for age groupers of 50+. Back to 2 hard/build weeks then 1 easy week. Also, I need to run more that 2 days a week and need to introduce doubles/bricks. In triathlon world, doubles are swim then run; bricks are bike then run. Learning how your body responds to training in the beginning produces better results in build/peak phases and races.
