“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”

When you cross the finish line at IronMaori, you will have accomplished something very special.

Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of Half and Full IRONMAN distance finishes and my success coaching hundreds of triathletes.

Beginner IronMaori Training Plan

Designed for Beginner triathletes who are looking to complete IronMaori event for the first time, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to COMPLETE YOUR IronMaori.

Starting 24 weeks before IronMaori (on 18th June 2018), this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Each week typically contains 3x swims, 2x bike rides 2x runs, 1x Brick (Bike/Run simulation) and a flexibility session. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).

  • Swim: 100 meters or yards continuously, 500 metres or yards total within a workout
