About Julie Dunkle:
Julie is an 8x Kona Qualifer and has raced Ironman Coeur d’Alene 3, three times with 2 Kona Q’s and an Age Group Win. This plan is written from my personal experience on the race course coupled my athletes who have successfully finished. This plan is specific to the course, with flat aero rides and challenging runs to prepare you for this course specifically.
About the Plan:
This 20 week program is an Intermediate Plan for Ironman Athletes. It’s great for middle of the packers looking to improve their finishing time and placement!A typical week has 3 swims, 3 bikes, 4 runs, and 2 strength sessions. Your days off are Mondays, your long rides are on Saturdays, and your long runs are on Sundays. There are bike-run (brick) workouts on most Saturdays. There are race simulation days to practice race day nutrition, hydration and ensure you are ready for a successful day. There is testing to set your swim, bike and run packing and HR ones.
Workout Distances & Durations:
Prior to starting this plan, you should have a base of an average of 6 hours of weekly training. It is a slow build to peak training.
-You will build in your max week to 18 hours of training
-4500 yards/meters as your longest swim
