The Competitive Intermediate  36-Week Half IRON Triathlon Training is designed for the Competitive Intermediate Athlete who has progressed from the Sprint distance to the Olympic triathlon distance and now desires to race the Half IRON distance, can handle a heavier training load, and has the desire to seek a podium position.

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

This plan uses a 3/1 structured workout approach; (3 weeks load, with a 1-week active recovery) incorporating proper warm-up, recovery, and strength training specifically designed for the Competitive Intermediate Athlete.

During the 24-week Full IRON training phase, you'll begin with 7.5hrs of training during your first week, with a weekly max of approx 12hrs.


This HALF IRON plan will focus on base endurance, intro into both tempo training and open water swimming, and will also include progressive brick workouts.

During the latter phases, you'll focus less on strength and technique and more on endurance, V02 interval training, adding anaerobic threshold training, and endurance track workouts.

Upon conclusion of this Half IRON triathlon plan, you’ll begin your maintenance training. As a Competitive Athlete, your focus will return to functional strength training, as well as base endurance, with an in-depth focus on technique during the swim training segments, and rebuilding your aerobic capacity with the re-introduction to V02 Interval Training.
