In the whole time I was there I never ran in the Yacht club. It's by far the most popular place for expats to run but I think it was like a 2.5km circuit with the out and backs. My frequent stretch was Koki markets around the headland to waterfront.
I've done two stints with Xavier from Team Tri, both were very valuable however for me a large enjoyable portion of the 'tri challenge' is figuring. I also leverage a lot of RunBrettRuns knowledge, I tend to try and always go harder and RBR loves to slow it down so he brings a necessary balance. I've gone through periods of TP, spreadsheet and nothing.
I'm doing Port Mac half as my next race, I started 'training' for it last week (by that i mean dedicated and with a purpose). My weeks will pretty much the same structure with varying intensity, duration and types of session depending on work and home commitments.
Monday - Hard swim
Tuesday - AM=Ride&Run - PM=Run
Wednesday - AM=Ride&Run - PM=Recovery swim
Thursday - AM=Ride&Run - PM=Run
Friday - Swim (Easy or hard depending on fatigue levels)
Saturday - Long ride, run off
Sunday - Long run - afternoon swim (usually easy)
Kudos where kudos is due the above structure is a week that Xavier put together that works for me and I've kept it. The reasons being, I'm a shit runner and I need to run more to get better. My lack of running history means I get run injured quite easily, he worked out frequent running combined with two full days off my legs worked best for me.
