Training for Excellence, with Excellent Training

Quarter IronMaori
Training Plan

Thursday Training Plan – Quarter IronMaori 16 Week Training Plan

“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”

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

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

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.

Starting 16 weeks before IronMaori (on 16 July 2018), this plan progresses through phases to build you to your peak performance. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).

Prior to using this plan, you should be able to complete the following workouts:

  • Swim: 100 meters or yards continuously, 500 metres or yards total within a workout
  • Bike: 15min continuously
  • Walk: 20min continuously

Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing related questions.

Questions? Please visit us on the web at www.CoachRay.nz or email myself directly at: coachray@coachray.nz

Training for another race distance? I also have training plans for IRONMAN/Challenge Triathlons (3.8km Swim/180km Bike/42km Run) and Sprint & Olympic Triathlons plus Running Races (from 5k to marathon), too.

Please note:
• This training plan starts on Monday 16 July 2018 and finishes on race day.
