First of all I will be telling my story soon. It pales in comparison to Greyhound’s but it’s all I’ve got. I figure if he is going to take days to get his story out I can wait a little while longer.
Here is a question that has been on my mind for a while. Not too many IM contenders read my blog but for those who do please riddle me this – why is there so little running in IM training? Compared to trianing distances for people who are ONLY doing a marathon, the IM training seems really light on the running. Is it because you need to spend more time swimming and biking to make that work at all? Is it because you just need to do enough to tough it out for the run when you are already totally used up? It seems like the longest run people training for an IM do is 90 minutes or maybe 15 miles – maybe. So what gives?
Thanks in Advance!
