Ironman Santa Rosa Coaching and Training Plan

What our coaches say about the race

A cooler temp (Usual to this early season race) and great since it is in wine country! Also a great first timer course and a place to PR. For this Tristar race specific plan we have added quality training sessions in the aerobars due to the flat nature of the course. Longer runs and rides have a steady effort to the training as both the bike and run being flat need constant efforts to keep moving! Course coaching will discuss the benefits of pacing this course over video and audio. —Kyle Halloran, TSA Level I Coach

North Carolina 70.3 Training Plan

WHAT OUR COACHES SAY ABOUT THE COURSE

A quick all around type of day in Wilmington. The point to point swim is fast with the current and a generous flat course on the bike where every "hill" rewards you with a bit of break from the flatter sections. The time of year also cooler and less humid tends to make the run equally faster and pleasurable. Our team of coaches have put together plan prep that is ideal for this course with specific bike training stress as well as run specific repeats to make you finish strong with a smile. Get ready to go fast and achieve your quest for that elusive 70.3 PR! —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach

Superfrog 70.3 Coaching and Training Plan

What our coaches say about the race

“An underrated course is what we say. It may be at the epicenter of triathlon (San Diego, CA) but its a low key competitive event. The sand beach run makes it a challenge and the Socal vibe is present. This custom Tristar training and race plan has pool based open water swim sessions to get you race ready as well as trainer sessions with larger gearing for the flat bike course.  ”
