First Full Distance
After getting into triathlon 3 years ago, I've now signed up for a full distance event next Sept. Up to now have done a variety of sprint, olympic and in 2014 one middle distance. In terms of my strengths/weaknesses it goes in the order of the event, swimming being my strongest, running weakest (not sure where nutrition lies in the list but that's probably a whole new thread!). Before the middle I had never run 13 miles before and it will likely be the same case for the 26 miles. I've started to look at training plans/events which has raised the question, would it be beneficial/wise to do a middle distance 10 weeks before the full as part of the training or should I just stick to "plan" distances and shorter events. Any advice, observations, opinions would be welcome.
