Thursday Training Plan: Did You Do IronMaori? Are You Stepping Up to Ironman?

“Training for excellence, with excellent training.”

When you cross the finish line of your Ironman NZ, you will have accomplished something very special. You will have completed the modified IronMaori and stepped up and completed Ironman NZ.

Designed for Intermediate triathletes who are looking to complete Ironman NZ, the primary goal of this training plan is to continue to IMPROVE your fitness from where you were at for 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.

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

  • Swim: 1,500 meters or yards continuously, 2,500 metres or yards total within a workout
  • Bike: 3:30hrs continuously
  • Run: 2:00hrs continuously

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

These programmes starts on Monday 10-Dec-18.
