Super Simple 20-week Half Ironman Plan

Training Load By Week
Training Load By Week

This 20-week plan is designed for the athletes looking for a simple plan that will get them across the finish line. It's a low to moderate-volume plan that is appropriate for the less-experienced half ironman distance athletes or experienced triathletes who have kept their off-season volume relatively low and prefer a gentle increase in training hours. There are 3 swims/bikes/runs and a rest day.
