Time in between Triathlons

Entered a sprint on the 6th sept, but also want to do one on the 26th august.
Is this too short a time off inbetween tris?
How long do most of you leave it?

    I did my first two tri's within 2 weeks of each other, both were olympic distance. Bath 2 weeks ago and London yesterday. Feeling fine today, just do it!
  • I did 3 sprints in sucessive weeks in June and got faster in each one and felt fine. Probably not ideal but didn't seem to cause me any probs.

    Depends on your recovery time, how hard you race, and what you want to get out of them. But a sprint is basically an hour/hour and half of quality training. If you are a young'un, you could do one on a Wednesday, and one on the Sunday, and Sundays will be the best performance. For me, I would have to have three days off afterwards, and two days rest before. So all I would do between is recovery runs/bikes/swims.

    But you should be fine with that gap between two sprints. Count the events as your quality sessions, and adjust your training schedule accordingly.
