Coaching / Overtraining
I have entered Weymouth (70.3) next September and have also entered a couple of preliminary events in May and July (Standard and Olympic distance respectively). I have engaged the services of a coach - I am pretty fit anyway (main strength is cycling), but wanted to make sure that I was using my time effectively, given that I work full time etc.
I have been training with the coach for a month now and I'm already running 90 minute sessions as part of my long run, as well as a recovery run after my long ride on Saturday's and also mid-week as part of a brick session (cycle/run).
Is this too much, too soon? I'm also swimming twice a week with a triathlon club and have had to drop my weekly PT session as there just seems to be too much going on. A couple of people have commented on the amount of training I'm doing already....
