Plan Description

Creator: Maria Simone, No Limits Endurance Coaching

Length: 24 weeks

Weekly Duration (average): 13 hours (includes recovery weeks in average)

Ability level: Intermediate

This 24-week plan is ideal for the advanced beginner or intermediate who will be racing Lake Placid.

The plan includes information about how to set your zones: 1) Heart rate for bike & run; 2) Power for Bike, 3) Pace for swim & run. Bike workouts are structured by power. Run workouts are structured by a mix of heart rate (for endurance runs) and pace (for speed and tempo runs).

Prior to starting this plan, you should be able to swim 2000 yards, bike 3 hours continuously, and run 75-90 minutes continuously. The plan includes swim sessions 3x/week, cycling 3-4x/week, and running 4x/week. You will begin with 10 hours per week, and peak at just under 19 hours. The average training time is approximately 13 hours per week, making this plan manageable for busy lifestyles.

In addition to the swim, bike and run sessions, this plan provides functional strength training sessions.

This plan was created by a USA Triathlon Level 2e certified coach with 10 years of coaching experience, and an athletic history that includes 10x 140.6 finishes, including 4 finishes at IMLP, and finishing the World Championships in Kona. Coach Maria is also a double iron-distance champion, and accomplished ultrarunner.

This plan does not come with regular coach correspondence. However, anyone who purchases the plan may have a one-time email consult - I recommend you take the time to review the entire plan and take note of any questions you have. Then, email them to maximize this correspondence. If you'd like a phone or video consult, you get 20% off the current rate.
