Who is this Plan for?
If you are not completely new to triathlon (or have at least some experience in all three of its disciplines - swimming, biking, and running), but you feel that you could do better on the bike, this plan can help you to tackle it and prepare to finish the IRONMAN® triathlon race in 24 weeks.
The plan is targeted at athletes who want to improve their bike time. It has mostly three bike sessions per week, longest bike workout being 5 hours (week 20) and most intense bike week being almost 7 hours on the bike (week 19).
The plan starts with more than 6 hours of training in the first week and reaches maximum training volume of almost 13 hours on week 20. It includes a variety of workouts (strides, tempo, steady-state, endurance, to name a few) arranged in three-week cycles, which will allow your body to adapt and prepare for a challenging race.
The plan has recommendations on when to participate in the sprint, Olympic, or IRONMAN® 70.3® events to get proper racing experience.
The plan is based on a percentage of your calculated Threshold Pace (it applies to swim, bike, and run workouts). Most swim and run workouts also refer to RPE 1-10 (Rating of Perceived Exertion) scale to help you to develop your 'pace by feel'.
The plan does have Strength & Conditioning workouts, however for the best results they should be followed with the supervision of the gym coach.
The plan is compatible with Garmin devices so you will have structured workouts delivered straight to your watch when using the AutoSync feature after connecting your TrainingPeaks and Garmin Connect accounts. Please check your device compatibility in the Garmin/TrainingPeaks website first and bear in mind that S&C workouts and swim workouts do not sync to Garmin platform yet.
