Length: This 12 week program is an Intermediate Plan for athletes who is racing their first 70.3 all the way to athletes looking to get closer to the 5 hour mark. This plan has less volume and than the Advanced plan as it averages 11 hrs per week. The weeks have 3 swims, 4 bikes, 3 runs, 1 brick run and 2 strength sessions.

Requirements: You should have good fitness over the past 4-6 weeks. Going into this plan you should be able to:
  • Swim at least 3,000 yards
  • Bike at least 2 hours
  • Run 60 minutes

You will build to:
  • 3,500m of swimming
  • 3.5 hours of cycling
  • 2.5 hours of running
Your off day is Friday, your long ride is Saturday and long run is on Sunday.

Our programs are designed for the age group triathlete who has a busy life with a full-time job, a family and/or other responsibilities. In this program, the longer workouts will be on the weekends, and the weekdays will consist of shorter workouts. There will be bike-run (or brick) workouts on most Saturdays and there will be a race simulation during this plan. During the training plan, there is testing every few weeks to assess your fitness and so you can re-adjust your Heart Rate and Power Zones. If you don’t train with a HR or Power meter, that’s fine as the tests are still good training as you can measure improvement based on time and effort.

Our plans set YOU up for success. The main goal of this plan is to help you achieve your best race! Mike has been coaching for 25+ years and uses that collective experience to help each individual athlete be successful at any level. His passion for the sport and wisdom gained from coaching thousands of athletes goes into designing a plan. He has taken the guesswork out of training with this plan and looks forward to helping you too.

We leave no stone unturned in helping you reach your goals. Purchase of this plan includes:
  • A weekly training tip video in your plan
  • The opportunity to be a part of one of the top Ironman Club Teams in the World
  • D3 'Terminology', and 'Determining Heart Rate and Power Zones' documents
