Iron Distance Advanced Triathlon Training Plan (16 Weeks)
If you've got 4 months to go until your Iron distance triathlon and need a plan, check out our 16-week Iron Distance Advanced Triathlon Training Plan.
Who's it for?
The Iron Distance Advanced Triathlon Training Plan is aimed at triathletes who have trained for a number of seasons, have completed a middle distance triathlon and are already training 10-12 hours per week. The aim is to help you to achieve your triathlon goal with a clearly structured 16-week plan which avoids over-training and injury, whilst also providing a relatively high training load within a balanced and controlled environment.
Is it for you?
If you’re looking for a training plan designed by specialist triathlon coaches who have competed in multiple Iron distance events all over the world and you don’t need a coach to hold your hand, then this is the training plan for you!
Because this plan is aimed at intermediate to advanced athletes, it progresses quite quickly from 12 hours a week of training up to 15.5 hours of training (averaging 13 hours a week over 16 weeks), building towards several 'big training days'.
Why choose our plan?
The coaches at WhittleFit have competed in Iron distance events all over the globe, therefore we’re very well placed to advise on the training requirements to have a great race.
