Unsure how to train for your first IRONMAN?
Have you been asking yourself the following:
- How much training is needed to finish?
- When should you be resting?
- What to focus on at different times in the plan?
- How am I going to fit it all in?
We know how it feels!
Having a busy work life, relaxing family time, and a fun social life aren't out of reach when training for an IRONMAN©. Yes, you will spend a considerable amount of time training, but using one of our specifically designed plans will ensure you maximise your training time and minimise the disruptions to the rest of your life. You can have a life balance when training for long-distance events, and we have created our plans with that in mind. Our low volume plans never go above 14 hours a week, even at peak volume, and we always aim to keep weekday sessions under 60 minutes to ensure you are still able to fit all your other commitments in. Coupled with built-in rest and recovery along with key focuses for each week of your plan you will be able to get to the start line well-trained, ready to race and feeling great!
Why choose one of our training plans?
We focus on three key things.
We don't believe in short cuts or gimmicks; we build our plans with tried and tested methods to get you to the start line in the best shape possible. Our focus is:
1. Building your endurance
2. Building your skills
3. Maximising your training time
We use Training Peaks to build all of our plans, which allows you to have great flexibility, the ability to personalise your training zones and get daily reminders.
