This is a 6-month Ironman plan that is designed for the athlete that has or has not dabbled in racing before or has never really had a structured training program. This plan is designed to get you faster and peak at the right time for your event. A typical week includes three swims, four bikes, and four runs. Athletes should plan on training 6-12 hours a week (peak week) and have done a couple of workouts already on their own through events/training.
What do you get in this plan?
• Email access to the author
• Training zones for each individual workout.
• Bike/run sessions fully up-loadable to compatible GPS devices and associated applications such as Garmin Connect, Trainer Road etc
• Periodized training plan that has been proven to achieve results.
For this plan you will need to set your zones for it to work. Please head to zones section in your profile and enter your swim pace, Bike HR/FTP/pace, and Run Pace/HR zones. (I prefer the USAT zone model). If you don't know what to enter please ready this article - https://www.trainingpeaks.com/blog/joe-friel-s-quick-guide-to-setting-zones/
