As your Accountability Coach, you’ll never be alone.--

You're going to love this 12-week Half-Ironman training plan from Ironman Certified Coach and 9 x Kona finisher, Wendy Mader! In addition to 12 week's worth of swimming, biking, running and strength training workouts, we also included 3 INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS, one before each 4-week phase. That's right! You'll be able to see and hear coach Wendy explaining how each training block is organized and structured. This IronDistance Program goes beyond numbers on a spreadsheet. It's a multimedia approach along with links to drills, heart rate, and pace training so you know the purpose and effort of each workout.

This program is designed with intermediate or advanced triathlete in mind. Before you start this program, you'll need to be comfortable swimming 1000 yards without stopping, cycling for 40 miles and running for 8 miles. If you can do all that, you'll do great with this plan. The goal of this Half- IronDistance Program is to increase your weekly volume (time/distance) with added race-specific intensity.

The 12-week program is your perceptive, competitive phase of training with a race or race simulation the 4th week. The second 4 weeks continue to build Ironman Specific volume and intensity. The final 4 weeks take you through a gradual taper to ensure you are recovered and ready to finish healthy and strong! So, are you ready to rock and roll!?
