This 12-week IRONMAN® plan will prepare you for your IRONMAN® event by building exception aerobic fitness.
To start this plan you should have completed 2 or more Iron-distance races and have a goal of improving your personal best race time. There are optional workouts included in most weeks to allow you to customize the plan to your capacity for training.
Weekly volume ranges from 16 to 21 hours based on your optional choices. The exception is in R&R weeks every third week when training is greatly reduced for 4-5 days culminating with self-testing. These R&R weeks will allow for adaptation and improved performance.
This plan is simple to follow and is written in every day language as you can see by clicking on the PREVIEW. Suggestions are made throughout to guide you in making training and race planning decisions.
