You're going to love this 8 week Sprint training plan from Ironman Certified Coach and 8x Kona finisher, Wendy Mader! In addition to 8 week's worth of swimming, biking, running and strength training workouts, we also included 8 FREE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS, one before every training week. That's right! You'll be able to see and hear coach Wendy explaining how each training week is organized and structured. This IronDistance Program goes beyond numbers on a spreadsheet. It's a multimedia approach along with links to drills, heart rate and pace training so you know the purpose and effort of each workout. This program is designed with the intermediate triathlete in mind. Before you start this program, you'll need to be comfortable swimming 1/2 mile, cycling for 12 miles and running 3 miles If you can do all that, you'll do great with this plan. The goal of this Program is to increase your weekly volume (time/distance) with added race specific intensity. The first 4 weeks are designed to gradually build your mileage and skills so you can stay injury-free. The second 4 weeks add some intensity while continuing to build strength and endurance with a suggested event. The last 4 weeks maintain volume and focus on intensity then build in a gradual taper week to ensure you are recovered and ready to finish healthy and strong! So, are you ready to rock and roll!?
