Last spring I ran about 30km a month....though was doing like 300km a week on the bike. When it came time to race....I came out of the water with the local pros, beat some of them off the bike....then came time to run. If I spent about 100km less on the bike a week, and spent those dew hours running, I woulda been smokin them. Oh and I was swimming about 2 hours a week open water.
So this year, what is different. Lots more bricks, and lots more running. So far I am doing 15 minute 3km runs consecutivley after a 30km TT. Last year I was lucky to be able to run 1km after a 30km TT without stopping.
So my point is that the race consists of 3 parts. Train for them all. Training one week cycling, then one week running is not usefull. You race them together, train them together.
