In general, mining training is cheap OSRS gold similar to Ironman in the normal ways of leveling , but the primary different is that you have to spend at least an hour before you can begin mining sources like gems to make Slayer bracelets or Volcanic Ash for Ultracompost.
It's a good idea to not reach 99 with the traditional method, but invest time in farming products that you'll require later on. For pickaxes, you shouldn't have any trouble with purchasing new ones since most of them can be bought from the NPC stores, with the exception of the Dragon one that is the only drop from a few bosses. If you decide to mine gold ore, it will provide precious materials for training in smithing.
Another tough skill to learn for Ironman. Prayer requires an enormous amount of bones or source of income for experience levels. The majority of players purchase them directly through Grand Exchange but not an Ironman.
Good luck! It's entirely dependent on how you'd like to approach it Personally, I don't like runecrafting but don't require the money, therefore I'm always slaying on the hunt for designs to use for runecrafting, as well as helping others with their RC effigies, (91 from now, I'd highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get 30k XP per day in RC)
I'd use the penguins as also for a quick boost every week, since that will add to a high XP count for as long as it takes for 99 Runecrafting. If free trade is restored, we'll likely see the rising of Air Law, Air and Double nature returning and that could be an ideal option, instead of just be at the altar for a while and allow people to bring the essence of your life.
