This program has a lot more strength training than most Ironman Training Plans. There is a reason for this: Most people slow down in Ironman NOT because of lack of cardio (out of breath), most people slow down because their legs are tired. Strength training non-specific (such as weight lifting) and specific strength (hill running, tempo combined with strength) will build up your body's resistance to fatigue. Another reason we do strength training is to help with cramping. Most people cramp in races NOT because of dehydration or salt loss, MOST cramping is because you are pushing your muscles harder and faster than you did in your training. Again strength training non-specific (such as weight lifting) and specific strength (hill running, tempo combined with strength) will build up your body's resistance to fatigue and help reduce cramping. There are a few long cycling days 70-100 miles, but those are mostly for nutrition practice and so you have the mental confidence that you can ride that distance. The same goes for a 17-20 mile run in the program, push yourself and get some confidence.
