This is a 16 week training plan designed specifically for a half Ironman distance race.
Frequency and consistency is key in training for any endurance event. This plan includes strength and core work to help you with injury prevention and performance gains. Every workout in this plan is written as a custom structured plan using Training Peaks Builder. This means you have the ability to export each workout to your Garmin or third party app such as Zwift, Trainer Road or Rouvy. This technology is a great benefit for training with greater accuracy and technology.
