Triathlon Training Plans

I build training plans for races ranging from Sprints to Ironman distance events and for beginners to elite athletes. Of course the longer distance events like the 70.3 and Ironman events really require some racing/training experience with the shorter events, Sprint and Olympic.

 

The workout plans created for any of these events are tailored to the individual using the information from an initial questionnaire that is completed by each athlete detailing their past and present physical condition, any injuries past or present, limitations, time constraints, and more along with a startup consultation phone call. With this information a comprehensive plan is built for your specific capabilities and the racing you have planned.

 

The training for these events entails a combination of swim, bike, run and strength work throughout each week. This plan builds throughout so that you build up a good base in the early stages of training and progress to more specific work as you peak for your races. Depending on the type of race you are doing and your available time workouts can be 2-3 times per week for each discipline (swim, bike, run and strength train) and up to 4-5 times per week for a detailed plan during peak training at the Ironman distance.

Sprint - ~.3 Mile Swim, 10 Mile Bike, 3 Mile Run

 

This plan generally starts off in the 3 hour range for the beginner and around 9 for the more advanced athlete and build to about 5 for the beginner and as high as 15 for the elite athlete.

 

Olympic - 1 mile swim, 24 mile bike, 6.2 mile run

 

This plan starts off in the 4 hour range for the beginner and around 11 for the more advanced athlete and build to about 7 for the beginner and as high as 16 for the elite athlete.

 

Half Ironman, 70.3 - 1.2 Mile Swim, 56 Mile Bike, 13.1 Mile Run

 

This plan starts off in the 7 hour range for the beginner and around 12 for the more advanced athlete and build to about 12 for the beginner and can go as high as 19 for the elite athlete.

 

Competing in an Half Ironman event is a big undertaking and a minimum of four months of training should be used to properly prepare for such an event.

 

Ironman - 2.4 Mile Swim, 112 Mile Bike, 26.2 Mile Run

 

This plan starts off in the 9 hour range for the beginner and around 13 for the more advanced athlete and build to about 17 for the beginner and can go as high as 21 for the elite athlete.

 

Competing in an Ironman event is a major undertaking and a minimum of four months of training is required to properly prepare for such an event.
