This 30 week Level 2 Enduring Ironman Plan is very progressive in nature and is based around consistent training over a 6-6+ month period. The plan starts very light in week 1 and gradually progresses ad becomes more specific as you go. Athletes who already have a light foundation of training and experience may start in week 7 (of 30)

All shorter, mid week cycling sessions are scripted in detail and done on the indoor trainer for time efficiency and to improve quality of training. If you prefer to ride outdoors it is easily adaptable

The plan is designed with optional easy OR off days and is also flexible enough that you can move sessions as they fit in your schedule better

Week 12 in to week 13 is scheduled as a VERY EASY unloading phase to prepare for the final phase of the plan. IF the schedule works, week 12 could also be a good chance to do a 70.3 (or any) race
