You're going to love this 8 week Ironman training plan from Ironman Certified Coach and 8x Kona finisher, Wendy Mader! In addition to 8 week's worth of swimming, biking, running and strength training workouts, we also included FREE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS. That's right! You'll be able to see and hear coach Wendy explaining how each training week is organized and structured. This Program goes beyond numbers on a spreadsheet. It's a multimedia approach along with links to drills, heart rate and pace training so you know the purpose and effort of each workout.
This program is designed with the intermediate / advanced triathlete in mind. Before you start this program, you'll need to be comfortable swimming 1,000 yards without stopping, cycling for 90 minutes and running for :45 minutes. If you can do all that, you'll do great with this plan. The goal of this Olympic Distance Program is to increase your weekly volume (time/distance) with added race specific intensity.
