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

Santa Cruz Half Marathon Training Plan

WHAT OUR COACHES SAY ABOUT THE COURSE

...consists of a 13.1-mile run/walk along scenic West Cliff Drive past breathtaking vistas of the Pacific coastline. Runners then pass through the surrounding neighborhoods and make their way west along a paved path through strawberry fields, past historic farm buildings to Wilder Ranch Sate Park. From there, it’s a loop on the Old Cove Landing Trail (unpaved) with incredible views of the rugged ocean bluffs. Runners then retrace their steps back to the finish line festivities on Cowell’s Beach just a stone’s throw from the start line. —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

A fun course for sure and a speedy one at that. Our athletes love the weather and time of year of the event. It has a great "vibe". The Tristar plan calls for a mix of long and short intervals on the bike in the aerobars. We course specific training sessions in the aerobars uphill so that you can crank on the flat sections of the bike course and still run well.— Megan Tobin, TSA Level I 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.  ”
