Hi, I recently completed my first 70.3 at Ironman Staffs in 6:35, so very much a back if the pack happy to finish standard. It's got me totally hooked and am looking at entering the Cotswold Classic middle distance tri on 23rd August. It's 8 weeks away, is this too close and if not, what sort of training volume would I need to be doing in this 8 weeks? To to put a spanner in the works, I'm doing my second marathon at Chester on 4th October. (First being London this year in 4:20) Am I being too ambitious and should I leave the Cotswold classic for another year?
