Iron man swim start

Ironman training plan 12 months

Elite Tri Coaching presents a meticulously designed 12-months Ironman Training Plan. This comprehensive guide is tailored to help you excel in the gruelling Ironman competition, a triathlon consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile marathon run.

Month 1-3: Building a Solid Foundation

The first quarter of our Ironman training plan is focused on laying a strong base. During this period, we aim to enhance your endurance and stamina. The training includes all three disciplines - swimming, cycling, and running.

Month 4-6: Enhancing Strength and Speed

In the second quarter, the focus shifts to improving your strength and speed. The training becomes more intense with a higher frequency of key sessions. Feedback is provided through Training Peaks and via email, ensuring you make consistent progress towards your goals.

Month 7-9: Race-Specific Training

The third quarter is dedicated to race-specific training. This period is crucial as it prepares you for the actual race day conditions. Our expert coaches, including Richard Keenlyside, provide tailored session planning, focusing on race strategies and post-race analysis.

Month 10-12: Tapering and Race Day

The final quarter is all about tapering your training, allowing your body to recover and prepare for the race. In the last month, there will be sessions to simulate race day conditions, followed by a detailed post-race analysis.

Unlimited Feedback and Constant Support

Our Ironman Full Package includes unlimited feedback and constant support from our experienced coaches. The training sessions are planned and monitored through Training Peaks, and a premium Training Peaks account is included in the package.

Tailored Session Planning 1:2:1

Our coaches provide tailored session planning, ensuring that each training session is designed to meet your specific needs and goals. This 1:2:1 approach allows us to provide personalised attention and guidance.

Initial Consultation and Season Goal Planning

Before starting the training, we conduct an initial consultation to understand your current fitness level, goals, and any potential challenges. This allows us to create a season goal planning that aligns with your objectives.

Training Peaks: Your Training Companion

Training Peaks is an integral part of our training program. It allows us to plan, monitor, and analyse your training, ensuring that you are always on the right track. It also provides a platform for seamless communication and feedback between you and the coach.

Race Day Strategy and Post Race Analysis

Our coaches will help you devise an effective race day strategy, ensuring that you are fully prepared for the big day. After the race, a thorough post-race analysis is conducted to assess your performance and identify areas for improvement.

Unlimited Plan Changes and 30 Days Notice Period

We understand that circumstances can change, so we offer unlimited plan changes. If you wish to discontinue the plan, we only require a 30-day notice period.

In conclusion, our 12-month Ironman Training Plan is a comprehensive guide designed to help you reach your full potential. With Elite Tri Coaching, you're not just training for an Ironman, you're embarking on a journey to greatness.
