Half Ironman Training Plan
Can anyone help find a training plan for a Half Ironman Event? The ones I have recently looked at look far too complicated!!
I'd recommend Joe Friel's Triathlete's Bible as a starting point. When's your half?
Here you go:
Swim for 45mins 3 time a week
Bike for 1hr 2 times a week
Spinning class once a week
Run for 1 hr 2 times a week
Do a long run = 2hrs every other week
Do a long bike = 3hrs every other week
Also do a few bricks every now and again (going out for a run after the a bike ride).
FInd something to give you energy on the bike (gels, bars) and practive using em.
Do a couple of olympic distance tris.
Eat healthy and give up smoking.
Job done - if you cant do the long rides/run now then gradualy build up to it.
Disclaimer - I am not a PT, The above is just what I think would work.
Many thanks for the advice!!
I'm aiming to do Half IM in August and am working to this plan:
Now until April
Mon :1hr swim at steady state (100 lengths)
Tue :10km running slow (50 mins) & I also do 30 min sculling - I love it!
Wed : 60km cycle on turbo at race pace
Thu : 30 min sculling or light 35 min run
Fri : 20 km run at race pace
Sat : off but usually get in a 30 min scull
Sun : cycle - club run 100km plus at the groups speed
After April I'll drop some of the slow stuff and do a few specific intervals to get faster and then I'll do heaps of bricks and also employ my 75% theory
I'll end it all off with a couple of race pace bricks and THEN WIND DOWN
