Dave Scott's Ironman Training Plan (Intermediate, 16 Weeks, Saturday Races)

dave scott headshotDesigned for the INTERMEDIATE triathlete, this 16-week training plan by Dave Scott will prepare you for the ultimate challenge of any Ironman distance race. The plan starts out with moderate volume and intensity at 13.5 hours per week and builds to 21 hours per week over the course of the plan prior to tapering to prepare you optimally for race day. The plan workouts are progressive and typically have 3 sessions per week per discipline (i.e. swim, bike, run). Monday is the designated day off.
This program may be set to start or end at any time for a goal race that takes place on a Saturday. If your race is on Sunday, please chose the Sunday version of Dave's plan.
This plan includes "marker sets,” which are periodic tests designed to challenge you, assess your progress and provide a realistic projection of race day potential. You have the flexibility of adding or deleting workout sessions depending upon your progression, work commitments, and available training time.

Following this program by completing at least 70% of the training sessions will give the fitness and confidence you need to perform successfully in you Ironman distance triathlon.
