Half IRONMAN 20-Week Beginner to Intermediate Training Program

Last modified: August 1, 2017

PURPOSE: This is a beginner to intermediate level 20 week (plus 4 week recovery) Half Ironman Distance training plan intended for use by the age group triathlete. Training time ranges from 7 hours up to 12 hours of weekly training. The goal is to gradually build fitness while building Half Ironman confidence. Every workout has a purpose labeled by the training zone (i.e Bike Z3). These can be accomplished by using RPE, Heart rate, and/or power meter for bike and run. Training zones are established via metabolic testing, calculations based on age, and/or Benchmark testing. With the busy age group athlete in mind, weekday workouts have light volume of 1 to 2.5 hours, which can be split between morning, afternoon, or evenings. Weekends include the long ride and run. I am happy to make modifications to workout days as requested. By the end of the 20 week training cycle, you will have a high level of fitness required to successfully complete a Half Ironman distance event (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run).
