This program will guide you towards achieving the physical challenge of a life time. Training for an ironman will not be easy and will push you to your limits but the achievement is like no other - the event includes a 2.4mi swim, a 112mi bike and a 26.2mi run. The total mileage you will need to complete to call yourself an ironman is 140.6mi. . The program runs for 20 weeks and includes:
-3-4 event specific sessions per week - these training sessions will build up your fitness, tolerance and endurance levels so you are physically and mentally prepared for event day.
-1-2 strength and conditioning sessions per week - strength training should never be an afterthought for individual's completing an endurance event. Dedicating time to strengthening in the gym will leave you stronger, more powerful and injury resistant.
-Training and event nutrition advice - so that you are fuelled for training, recovery and race day.
-Recovery guidance - train hard, recover harder. If you want to get the most out of your training sessions you need to make recovery a priority.
-Data analysis tips - if you, like me, record health data such as heart rate and HRV I will provide tips on what data is worth tracking and how to use it to your advantage.
-Peer support - you will be added to a private Facebook group, made up of likeminded people, also training for endurance events. You’ll be able to post questions, share your journey and receive encouragement, support and motivation.
After making a one off payment, the plan will be emailed over to you for you to start as and when you’re ready
