"ELITE AMATEUR"  - 36 WK - Half IRONMAN® (70.3) Triathlon Training (w/3 Month BASE + Strength Training for the Elite Amateur Triathlete)

The Elite Amateur 36-Week HALF IRON Triathlon Training is designed for the Elite Amateur Athlete who seeks to race the Half IRON distance; can handle a heavier, more intense training load, and has the ability to finish within 8% of the overall winning time or an overall win yet hasn't completed any endurance training in the last 90 days. 

No prerequisite training or base mileage is needed as this Half IRON plan begins with a 12-week base plan followed by a 24-week specific Half IRON training plan. 

During the 12-week base phase, you'll begin with 5.5hrs  of training during your first week, with a weekly max of 9.5hrs. During the last week, you'll perform your first brick session to assess your fitness level just before beginning the 24-week Half IRON training phase. 

During the main 24-week Half IRON training phase, you'll begin with just under 8hrs of training during your first week, with a weekly max of approx 16hrs. 

This is a structured training plan based on % of heart rate & Pace/Power, a Garmin type of device is required as workouts can be auto-synced to your device. 

The plan uses a 3/1 structured workout approach; (3 weeks load, with a 1-week active recovery). 

As an Elite Amateur Athlete, you'll focus significantly on functional strength training, followed by conventional strength training during the beginning phases of training, as well as base endurance, with an in-depth focus on technique during the swim training segments.

During the latter phases, you'll focus less on strength and technique and more on endurance and developing all aspects of the aerobic system.
