46 Weeks and Counting

Forty-six weeks from now, I will be participating in the Ironman 70.3 Miami

One week ago, I exacerbated an old knee injury which prevented me from running the Marathon of the Palm Beaches Half Marathon.  Since that time, I have done one five mile run, which was frought with anxiety as my knee kept feeling like it was going to go out on me.  I have also done two twenty-five mile bike rides, which were just fine.

I wonder then, how many workouts should I do in the next 46 weeks?  The minimum seems to be three of each type (swimming, running, biking, strength training).  That gives me a total of 184 workouts.  Total time depends on the length of each workout I guess.  Let’s say I do an average of 1.5 hours per workout.  The total comes to 276 hours of training.  It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s probably enough.
