These plans and who they’re “best for”… it’s not me. It’s nowhere near me. But here I am, getting ready to start training for my second IM.
I can’t complete these swim workouts in the times required. Some of them, in twice the time. This must me able to run 10Mi without stopping, must have 8-12hrs during build, must have, must have, must have……

I used the program for my Chattanooga 1/2 training, but after awhile I gave up on some of these workouts because they’re so far out of my reach. And honestly, I don’t know how to tailor these to the training I need. I don’t think I was getting enough hill relative work, on foot or wheel. The biking is what I stuck with most on the training plan, but I started throwing in hard 2x3’s or whatever they’re called to get more Chatty hill feelings.
