Boulder Collaboration (Advanced/Elite) HALF DISTANCE 14 week
Austin MitchellAll plans by this Coach
Stayed in contact with two buddies of mine in boulder and we built this plan that is meant for advanced "Half distance" athletes. This is NOT for training for a sprint, or full distance race. This collaboration with two extraordinary athlete/coaches in Boulder was meant to benefit and challenge advanced athletes while the plan is still obtainable and eliciting the adaption needed to be competitive if recovery is supplemented properly. (9 hours sleep and a 30 minute nap mid day, daily)
This plan was created to increase difficulty level of swims, and add an extra cycling day. The run portion of the program has achieved multiple sub 1:20 runs. The swims have created many of the most competitive age groupers in the United states because the coach who helped is a popular and local swim coach within the mecca of triathlon. The strength is a creative mix of traditional and progressive strength that was learned over many years as a full time trainer working with 80% endurance at any given moment during my career. Many of the strength sessions were actual sessions we did leading into the most competitive races in the States.
Bottom line. If you are an advanced amateur who is looking to podium... and you have some past level of fitness under your belt.... then this plan is for you. You will need to prioritize training twice and sometimes 3 times a day and there is no room mixing or "making up" workouts. You can do this.
