This 18 week plan will get you prepared for a strong race. Building slowly over the 18 weeks and dialing in segments of speed and power. All Trainer rides can be traded out for similar effort road rides if no trainer is available or if you just need to get outside.
For the Austin 70.3 you must be prepared for hills and lots of them! Hills on the bike and hills on the run. So go find yourself some hilly training grounds.
Be prepared for any kind of weather. November doesn't mean its going to be cold, it could be 90 degrees. You just never know what you are going to get, so about 2 weeks out start watching the weather patterns. Nothing really matters till 3 days before however.
Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have questions on these workouts.
Enjoy and see you at the finish line!
