70.3/Half Ironman Training Plans

1.2 Mile Swim, 56 Mile Bike, 13.1 Mile Run

 

70.3, Half Ironman -Novice Triathlete * – This plan is for the beginner or developing athlete. No real experience is necessary in any of the disciplines but this is a challenging Half Ironman training program so you should have some kind of a base to work off as this program starts out with about 7 hours of training and ramps up to about 12 hours per week of training.  There will be four workout sessions per week of swim, bike and run. This program will start with low aerobic workouts and progress into moderate aerobic intensities before tapering so that your confidence and ability will peak for race day.  Long Brick workouts are included on the weekends and build throughout the program.  These long workouts let you experience nutritional needs to fuel you from race start through to the finish line. Successfully racing the half Ironman distance requires an element of speed so this plan includes some higher intensity, anaerobic work.  These workouts will give you a higher metabolic return than only working at moderate intensities.

 

A strength building plan is included and will entail about another hour of work per week.
