Meticulously crafted from the principles laid out in Matt Fitzgerald's bestselling book 80/20 Triathlon, this Ironman Level 3 training plan will provide you with the same workout structure used by the most successful triathletes in the world. It has been specifically formulated to ensure the athlete adheres to the 80/20 principle.
This plan was created for exceptionally ambitious triathletes willing to invest significant time in becoming an Ironman demi-god. It assumes you have previously completed several long-distance triathlons and can already comfortably swim and run for 1 hour and cycle for 2 hours. Be sure to build up to at least 7 hours of weekly aerobic exercise over multiple weeks before you begin. The weekly training volume begins at approximately 10 hours in Week 1 and peaks at approximately 20 hours in Week 19.
All purchased 80/20 Endurance plans become a permanent part of your TrainingPeaks plan library. You can start, stop, and reuse the plan as often as you like, beginning or ending at any point in the plan.
