Hi, looking for some views on how to squeeze in some running whilst on a plan. I’ve just started the tri plan (replacing one swim with a steady run and one with either an easy outdoor ride or some extra strength) but feel this isn’t really for me, I’m not a racer and there’s a lot of emphasis in there on speed I think and I’d prefer a longer focus on climbing.
My running is important to me but I like a trail run at the pace I feel like running, I’m not really interested in the race but in the headspace and buzz that it gives me.
Riding is fast randonneur pace rather than race pace so maybe 300k 11-12 hours moving. I enjoy climbing.
Is it better to take on maybe gravel plan or hilly grand fondo plan and try and shoehorn a few running sessions per week in there or better to stick with a tri plan? Or maybe use the blocks and fit running in around those? I can’t really afford a custom plan at the moment.
Thanks in advance.
