Ironman Wisconsin Training Plan

What our coaches say about this course

A very underrated Ironman that is one of our favorite courses as coaches here at Tristar Athletes. The hills keep coming on the bike and can really slow even the strongest of Ironmen and Ironwoman. This Tristar plan calls for vertical elevation training specific to this course with sessions that take you at and beyond the TSS required to ride well on this course. All sessions sync with your devices so you can learn to pace both the bike and run well. Our Raceday nutrition plan and strategy also are a Tristar favorite for this race.. — Adam Daniels, TSA Level III Coach

This race is flat and fast where athletes need to watch their nutrition and hydration. "Specificity" is the best word to describe the exact work you will need to do in this training plan to succeed.

Ironman Chattanooga Training Plan

What our coaches say about this race

A long 116 mile bike and "buzz saw" run makes this course formidable if you don't have the proper plan and raceday strategy. Our key bike sessions most remember when preparing for this course in their training peaks plan.... we build up lots of firepower on the bike in training only to not use it in favor of unleashing efforts on the run. We LOVE this course as our Tristar plan includes a sound raceday strategy prepared by our TSA level III coaches that beats out the competition. We find pacing so crucial to both the bike and run that we have been able to have our athletes consistently beat "fitter" athletes based on pacing intelligence. Ask your Tristar coach about our proprietary pacing calculator for this race when registering for this plan and coaching. — Adam Daniels, TSA Level III Coach

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
