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

Mont Tremblant-70.3 Training Plan

What our coaches say about this course

A single loop wetsuit legal swim without any "drama" to worry about in the gorgeous waters of Elk Lake. One single loop of the coastline on the bike gets your legs slightly fatigued for the run but nothing too difficult if you stick to the Tristar plan. The total bike training load is slightly weighted in the plan versus swim and run stress to the training plan during the final build phases. For the run specific aspects of your training plan we have created treadmill to trail specific run sessions that are unique to the event. —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach

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

Ironman Louisville training plan

WHAT OUR COACHES SAY ABOUT THE COURSE

...Don't be deceived this bike course has some elevation! For the Tristar plan we dial up the total training stress and hill work to be well prepared. (Be sure to tell us if you live somewhere flat ; ) ....Featured bike and run course specific time trials are part of this plan as well for IMLV. This ironman course takes place in the South in October which can be warmer during the day and cooler in the morning and evenings with heat being less of an issue. The flat run finishing on Fourth street is fun as the fans pull you home! —Cliff Scherb, TSA Level III Coach
