Custom training plan,1x1 Coach to athlete relationship.
A bucket list triathlon to do once in your career for sure. Top level athletes go to this race to show their stuff early in the season. An ocean swim with hilly bike course soften your legs for a great Pacific Ocean front seat 13.1 mi marathon run. Many key training plan sessions for this race come into our Tristar plan to get you ready including fast start swim workouts, key brick sessions and hill specific long runs. —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach
New to the 70.3 race scene as of 2018, this course is fast for sure. Water temps can be nice and cool as is the air temperatures to start the day. Could be just what you needed to get that half ironman PR?! This Tristar Athletes training plan has training stress that hits it just right for the bike and run sessions timed to keep the feet fast coming off the bike.” —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach

What could be better... tougher... than doing a half ironman on the world championships course? Honu! Hot and challenging on the run, this course will test your mettle. This custom coached plan calls for our heat acclimation and protocol as well as open water swim workouts with flat course aerobar sessions. One of our favorite 70.3's here at Tristar Athletes. -Coach Haluk Sarci, TSA Level II Coach.
One of the tougher half ironman on the Ironman circuit. Hilly and extensive long climbs on the bike make this course one of our favorites here at Tristar. For your plan we feature muscular endurance sessions for the bike and the run to make sure your go big in the desert. (*Plan includes custom course Zwift workout files)
“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. ”
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
Certainly one of the most beautiful courses out there and in wine country! It can be hot and the Tristar plan calls for our heat protocol to make sure you can hang tough through the day. This plan also includes extra time riding in the aerobars for a quick bike on raceday. —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach
