Ironman training and length of program
I completed 2 Ironman in 2006 (Port Mac and Hawaii). Following Hawaii I continued to train for the season and the result was overtraining syndrome. I took some time off and have just finished 6 races over sprint and Olympic distance. I performed below par all season, and once again I was overtrained. I am planning some more time away from intensive training and will be keeping everything well below threshold. I am travelling to Europe in July and will only be able to run. This brings me to my question. I would like to race Ironman W.A. This will only give me 16 weeks of training. Do you think it is possible to have a decent race? Thanks, any comments appreciated.
