Subject: Simple Tips on Training Plan?

http://www.scribd.com/doc/176142392/Triathlon-Training-Sheet1

I'll be competing in my first HIM in about 11 months (September 6).  I've developed this plan by myself and am really unsure of what it's like. 

I swim for a team so there's no swim training on there.  That'll be 5-6 days a week and whatever yardage/intensity the coach describes, so don't need help there.  I also picked up XC this past fall and we were on a 50-60-70 mile rotation, running everyday (long runs 10, 12, 14).  Now that swimming's into full swing, I won't be able to run everyday without burning out, so I took away one run day to just bike.  I also decreased the volume big time.  It's now at 35-45-55 with 28 on recovery weeks.  

For the bike, I don't have a lot of experience here and haven't done rides longer than 35 miles. Where it's listed "endurance, energy, and power," they're bike workouts I found online named that way.  They're all for the most part 1 hour indoor workouts. It's a 12-week program with each workout supposed to be once a week.  Every 4th Saturday I threw in a brick workout that will be used just to see how I'm progressing.  As you can see, it's simple. All the same to make the base for 20 weeks.  

Then it goes into a speed phase, where I start to throw in different trainer workouts and threshold/workout runs.

Where I feel I have no knowledge whatsoever is the race season, and how to handle training then.  I want to be fresh for all the OD races, but I also don't want to decrease training so much to lose the progress I built up for the HIM, which is my A-race you could call it.

I just kinda tried to mix in decreased volume training with intensity and then I threw together a taper (can you even call it that?) before the HIM.

 

I don't expect anyone to go through the whole training plan.  I'd have to pay ya a big amount if you did that, so please don't .

However, I'm wondering if anyone can help me through that race-season training and give me some simple tips on what I did wrong/right.

This is a long post, so I'd really appreciate if anyone did help me out a bit.  It'd be much appreciated.

Using a high-volume schedule for many months is not the best tactic. Build speed and skill several months out, and then transition to a high-volume IM plan.

This plan is designed to make you go faster. 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work. The maximum volume is around 10 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

This plan is an advanced plan in terms of volume and intensity and appropriate for someone who is looking to go under 5:00 and as fast as 4:30. There isn’t a lot of fluff in the plan.
