Training Load By Week

This 14 week plan will get you prepared for a strong race. Building slowly over the 14 weeks and dialing in segments of speed and power. All Trainer rides can be traded out for similar effort road rides if no trainer is available or if you just need to get outside. For the Kerrville Half Iron Distance you must be prepared for some hills! So go find yourself some hilly training grounds. Be prepared for any kind of weather. Typically this race is cool in the morning and hot by the afternoon. Feel free to email me at erin@bigpistachio.com if you have questions on these workouts. Enjoy and see you at the finish line!
