Hey Gang, I'm living here in Berlin and the tri community is fantastic.
I'm doing Roth on 7.13. I'd like to do a few half marathons this winter. I'd also like to do a half ironman two or three months out but tris don't start here in northern Germany until June.
There is a middle distance duathlon: 19k, 84k, 5k on 5.24. I will probably do that but I wish the run was after rather than before.
Then there is an olympic distance and middle distance tri on june 28th. Most of the club members will do the olympic before doing Roth or Zurich. The middle distance is just shy of a half ironman on the bike and run.
Last year I followed gordo's taper for ironman which had me do a 4-5 hour brick (60 minutes run) about two weeks out. (http://www.byrn.org/gtips/taper.htm) it worked well. Would the extra thirty minutes of running kill my ironman if I take it easy? Should I do the olympic instead? Just bag both races and have my first tri of the year be roth?
Thanks for your input guys. I realize there probably isn't an ideal situation here. Fortunately I am doing this sport because I love it .
