Marius Triukas   Train By Data

Sub 3-hour marathoner and three times iron distance finisher, IRONMAN® Certified Coach with IT background (ah, and the father of two). Interested in data analysis and constant search for improvement, meter-by-meter, second-by-second.

If you’re ready and willing to delve into your training data and if you want to explore how numbers translate to your fitness, let’s talk and see if we can find out what your training may or may not has been missing.


I believe that no training plan shows it’s full potential if you’re just blindly following it.

As a guy with an IT background (that’s where my love for data and numbers comes from), I follow Scrum-like approach to training (don’t worry if the word “Scrum” does not say anything to you):

  • You should have a clear final goal - it is your A race.
  • You should know steps, which you need to perform to succeed (IT guys call it Backlog) - it’s your training plan.
  • You should train in iterations, and you may adapt your plan if needed - that’s where a piece of coach advice comes handy.
  • You should have a detailed workout plan for each iteration and your progress should be measurable

If all that makes sense to you and you have your goal to reach - you can check one of my training plans and reach out to me by e-mail to discuss it. Or you may follow my plan on your own and experiment by modifying it according to your strategies. In any case, it would be great to hear your feedback - it helps all of us to improve.
