Ironman Tulsa Coaching and Planning

What our coaches say about this course

Tulsa is NOT flat... ! The rollers on the bike in this area + the heat will challenge most long course racers as they ride through the Ossage Hills. The run leaves Oklahoma State University’s Tulsa campus and make its way through historic vibrant downtown Tulsa to the River Parks Trail System. Runners will have flat and fast views of the Arkansas River as they make their way down past Tulsa’s Gathering Place and back to downtown to finish at the beautiful Guthrie Green. Our Tristar coaches have a plan for being balanced on all three disciplines and hill specificities to ensure a great run off the bike.. — Coach Cliff, TSA Level III Coach

Eagleman 70.3 Training Plan

What our coaches say about this course

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. We dial it in using aerobar hill repeats to generate strength through trainer ride intervals as well as outdoor sessions with hills to work the legs. ...Keeping a high output is key to this flat course and this plan features a ton of just that!This race is flat and fast where athletes need to watch their nutrition and hydration.

Ironman Maryland Training Plan

What our coaches say about this course

Get low and stay low on the bike, prepare yourself to run quick! This flat and fast course does demand your full attention all day long as there are no breaks on this course. Weather can be a factor with how to pace the bike and typical for this time of year can still be hot or even rainy. The Tristar training plan has several key swim to bike training sessions to derive confidence in the final Build II phase. The overall base is a steady build. We highly recommend listening to our course overview. — Adam Daniels, TSA Level III Coach
