Matt Fitzgerald & David Warden - Over 60,000 Training Plans Sold 8020Endurance.comAll plans by this Coach
Featuring the proven 80/20 intensity balance described in Fitzgerald and Warden's bestselling book 80/20 Triathlon, this IRONMAN® Level 3 training plan will provide you with the same workout structure used by the most successful triathletes in the world.
This plan was created for exceptionally ambitious triathletes willing to invest significant time in becoming an Ironman demi-god. It assumes you have previously completed several long-distance triathlons and can already comfortably swim and run for 1 hour and cycle for 2 hours. Be sure to build up to at least 7 hours of weekly aerobic exercise over multiple weeks before you begin.
INTENSITY TYPE : HEART RATE
This plan presents the bike and run workout intensity targets by Heart Rate, and the swim by Pace. Pace and Power versions of this plan are also available.
FREE TRAININGPEAKS PREMIUM
This plan includes 30 days of TrainingPeaks Premium for free, by extending your existing account or upgrading from Basic for 30 days. This offer is available one time per athlete and is not applicable to coach-paid accounts.
Every 80/20 Endurance plan purchased becomes a permanent part of your TrainingPeaks plan library. You can start, stop, and reuse the plan as often as you like, beginning or ending at any point in the plan.
Not sure which level is right for you? Review our Level Comparison Charts to find the best fit. There’s zero risk: Our Level Guarantee allows you to switch to a different level or intensity type within the same distance if you discover that the plan you’ve selected is too hard or too easy.
100% STRUCTURED WORKOUTS
Each workout can be exported to a supported device, which will automatically guide you through the session with duration, lap, and intensity prompts. See our Structured Workout page for more information.
