Since IM France is 4 weeks earlier than IMLP, and I have to race Desertdude at Wildflower in May, my plan is to keep working the bike through the winter. Frankly my running does not have that much upside in half Ironmans. My half IM's at the end of the year were 1:26 and 1:28. I'm not going to shave 5 minutes off those times, but I believe I can take 5 minutes off my half IM bike times compared to last year. My target is 800K over the 100 days. 10 down 790 to go :-) But you're right, that marathon on the promenade des Anglais will kill me if I don't do the run work now, so the work will happen. I'll run later today....currently minus 19 but brilliant sunshine!
