The Question...

Can a multi-sport endurance athlete train at all three sports everyday for 30 days and remain healthy?  Let's find out!  I have said before you can do anything at base heart rate all day long, now it's time to try it.  If you would like to join me we start today or tomorrow, however we end no later than the 31th of this month. 

Here are the rules and the sports requirements for each session:

Swim - 800  (I will let you pick between meters or yards)
Bike - 10 miles
Run - 2 miles

Any of these sports can be done multiple times per day with a 4 hour rest between, because I know that you might not get to do all three each day.  Example of a qualified training day:

Swim - 1600
Bike - 15 miles / 6hrs later 10 miles on trainer
Run - 2 miles / 2 miles as a t-run off the second bike
Total = 1 swim, 2 bikes, 2 runs

If you do any of the sports doubling or tripling the required distance, it will not count for multiple sessions working towards your 30 times in 30 days.  The session will only count as 1.  This will help with frequency over volume.

Yes, you can use a stationary bike, however it needs to have an odometer on it.  Remember, to keep this up for 30 days you will need to stick as closely to base HR as possible or you could hurt yourself.  Also, the time this takes in a day will not differ from any of our scheduled build weeks two-a-days...
