Six Weeks to your Hilly Half Ironman Triathlon Race Training Plan. It’s crunch time! Now that you’ve built up your base fitness, it’s time to put it all together for your race!
This plan will lead you into a final build and taper for your big race. After Field Tests to set up your training zones and paces in all 3 sports, you’ll top up your fitness with Threshold, Sweet Spot and plenty of Tempo work on hills (real or simulated) that lead into a half ironman race simulation weekend in week 4. The hilly race simulation gives you a chance to test your fitness and pacing as well as your gear and nutrition so you’ll know you’re race-ready! Then you’ll recover and taper into week six so you’re razor-sharp for that big half ironman PR!
Shorter weekday workouts are designed to fit your busy schedule and can be done on the bike trainer or treadmill if you can’t get outside. Longer rides and runs on the weekends let you keep your climbing and descending skills sharp. Plus, all of the running and biking workouts can be downloaded directly to your Garmin Forerunner 935XT, Fenix 5, or smart trainer so you know you’re training optimally!
This plan includes a choose-your-own swim workout plan with 3 different levels of pool swim workouts. Pick the workout level that best matches your ability and delete the other two. OR, if you have the time, add one of the other swim workouts to the weekend for more time in the water!
Also included are all those extra details that make for a strong and resilient triathlete like Yoga, Foundation exercises, and activation work to keep your hips and back mobile and healthy. Links to videos help ensure you’re doing the movements correctly and with a 60 day FREE YogaGlo membership you have no excuses not to do it!
