Ironman Texas Training Plan

WHAT OUR COACHES SAY ABOUT THE COURSE

"Go big or go home" is the motto we adopted for this training plan and coaching style for Ironman Texas. The flat + fast bike course requires diligence on the bike and we raised training stress (TSS) to that end so you can run strong off the bike in the woodlands. The trainer based and outdoor ride sessions use a combination of power, RPE, and ♥ rate to create the highest fitness level possible. All of our sessions on the run are timed with your Garmin or similar device so you can do your training and intervals at goal race pace. This plan features a deep base of training that is applied to each individuals ability when filling out the athlete questionnaire. —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach

Texas 70.3 Training Plan

What our coaches say about the race

"Dont mess with Texas", OR at least be prepared...! A nice on loop swim off the sandy white beach starts the day nicely before a windy bike ride. Temperatures are usually decent this time of year... we prepare athletes with this Tristar custom plan to have trainer specific rides that can be done on Zwift (or any trainer) since the race hits early in the season when most North American athletes have limited outdoor riding time. Specific and quality 70.3 Texas run intervals are also featured.— Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach
