In general, I tend to steer athletes away from pre-built plans. I feel that a coach’s feedback and guidance is a critical part of athletic performance. However, I also understand that there are a lot of self-coached athletes out there in need of some guidance when building fitness into a key race, and assuming that the athlete can keep an active approach to recovery and be able to listen to his or her body, a well written ttaining plan can be quite helpful.
So, with that in mind, I am excited to announce that I am building a series of pre-built training plans for various distances and athletic abilities. The first of these plans is a 12-week build to peak fitness for a half-ironman distance race.
The 12 Week Build to Half-Ironman – Intermediate/Advanced Plan is a training plan designed for athletes training 14-17 hours per week in their build-up to a key race, with recovery weeks at 10 hours or less. It is assumed that the athlete beginning this plan will have several years of endurance sport training history. It is recommended that the athlete be able to complete separately 2500 meters of swimming, a 3 hour bike ride, and a 2 hour run before beginning this plan.
The cost of the training plan is $300. To purchase this plan, please follow this link to TrainingPeaks. I’m also offering a 10% discount on this plan for a limited time (expires 4/1/2017). To get your 10% discount on the plan, enter the code: trismarter10 If you don’t already have one, you will need, at a minimum, a Basic TrainingPeaks account, which is completely free.
Please feel free to contact me with questions regarding this plan. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
