There are 9-10 workouts per week with 2-3 swims, 3 cycles, 3 runs and a strength workout. There's a day off each week and every 4th week is slightly easier. Training Zones are provided with HR, Feel, Power or Pace. To be successful you should have at least 12-months experience of triathlon. You can start this plan any Monday. After this winter plan we recommend using one of our other Ironman 70.3 plans to take you to race day.
