    Tri and Long distance cycling training

    I am looking at doing some brevets towards the end of the year and I am looking at starting to train for them. I normally have to wait till the evenings to do my workouts so I am kinda limited on what I can do.

    The work out schedule I am planning on doing now since the water has warmed up enough in the river to start swimming regularly (no pools in the town I live).
    Monday- swim with ride to river and maybe some additional miles afterwards
    Tuesday - track run
    Wednesday - Group ride
    Thursday - Swim
    Friday- Cross Country track run
    Saturday- Long ride/Group ride
    Sunday - ?

    What kind of LDC workouts does one do to complete the Ironman distance ride?
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.

    Read this. Work on power at threshold (with steady-state intervals, over-unders, and quality long miles. Doesn't take too much to get a quick, comfortable century (or uncomfortable, at your discretion!)
    Running season is in full bloom but I have the itch to ride cross.
