70.3 Triathlon - Time Crunched - 20 week
What I do as an IRONMAN and USAT Certified Coach is help athletes prepare for swim, bike, and run events in the least amount of time possible. This efficiency helps my athletes maintain a balanced life. Success is achieved when athletes demonstrate continual improvement in both sport and life!
This particular plan is catered to triathletes that have had a short break from triathlon training, and those that race to complete as much as compete. It is ideal for beginners (a few short triathlons preferred), intermediates that have taken a few months off, or Masters-aged athletes (40+) that are looking for a more conservative plan relative to time spent training. The 1st week training load is 5 hours, and the peak week is 9 hours. Easily accomplished by most 70.3 triathletes with a focus on completing the race. If you are slightly beyond 5 hours of proper triathlon training per week, consider removing the 1st 4 weeks and use this as a 16 week plan based on race date.
Most of the bike and run sessions are structured in Training Peaks and downloadable to many multisport watches and running/cycling apps including Rouvy, Trainer Road and Zwift.
I have been coaching multisport athletes since 2008 doing business as Cycling Form & Fitness LLC. I have successfully coached sprint through 140.6 distance triathletes ranging from 1st race completion to age group podiums. I have personally finished on the AG podium at many triathlons varying from Sprint to 70.3; both on-road and Xterra.
Once you have purchased a Training Plan, you can schedule coaching appointments with me using my website at a reasonable hourly rate as desired, 1/2 hour appointments also available.
