Plan Description

HR BASED TIME CRUNCHED 24 WEEK BEGINNER IRONMAN plan



Training to a plan built by someone who knows what they’re talking about has made a huge difference. For me having the structure outlined by Steven was motivating, but more importantly it has improved my enjoyment of racing and without-doubt has improved my times

Dave Cullen




This 24 week plan is designed to help a time crunched beginner triathlete build their fitness around a full work/life schedule to steadily progress their fitness to be ready to tackle an Ironman based on 6 - 12 hours a week.


Each swim/cycle/run session is clearly laid out in terms of what the athlete needs to do and when best to do the sessions and is based primarily on HR zones that the athlete should train in.


Plan outline
Base or fitness/stamina development = 12 weeks
Build or race specific training = 10 weeks
Taper or readying yourself for race day = 2 week
3 week progression:1 week recovery cycle
