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

Chattanooga 70.3 Training Plan

What our coaches say about the course

One of our top pics in the Deep South to race, this course has a bit of everything in it. The point to point swim with the current makes the day go quick and the long low rollers are fun to punch up and over on the bike course. The run is challenging but not as much as its big brother Ironman Chattanooga. For this training plan we built in proper training stress (TSS) for a more challenging bike, and low grade hill repeats in the final build block to strengthen your overall run finish for raceday. —Haluk Sarci, TSA Level II Coach
