16 week 70.3/half ironman plan - Novice, mature, low fitness starting point athletes - reusable.

16 week plan perfect for athletes doing their first 70.3. It's also great for those coming back from a lower level of fitness or mature athletes. This program is designed to be sustainable around work & children etc. Peta prides herself in sustainable training that fits in with the rest of your life. Perfect for any age grouper who wants to complete a 70.3 comfortably but doesn't want to give up all their free time. Double training days are kept to a minimum. Long Rides and runs are weekend focussed. Plan is based on time for run/cycle and approximate time/distance for swimming therefore the plan doesn't reflect the total distance. The plan is characterised by a slow build in training commitment, a 4 week peak period followed by a 2 week taper. Key preparation sessions are highlighted throughout the plan. The road cycle sessions allow for flexibility for those that would like a longer or shorter long ride.. The timing in the plan has been put at the lower end of the long rides scale. If the maximum ride time is used the plan is 11 hours/week. There is also provision in the program for those that prefer a walk/run strategy. Please look under the work outs for help with terminology and exercise descriptions. Email contact@energisecoaching.com.au with any queries. Peta is happy to answer any questions in regards to the plan, the terminology or the drills. Required: This plan is intended for athletes who have a goal to finish their first 70.3 event, mature athletes or those who are coming back to half ironman at a lower level of fitness.
