Training Plan

18 week Spring Challenge Training Plan starts 30-May-22

When you cross the finish line of the Te Anau Spring Challenge or Hawkes Bay Spring Challenge, you and your teammates 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 being involved in adventure racing for many years, and completing dozens of Half and Full IRONMAN distance finishes and my success coaching hundreds of triathletes & adventure racers.

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

Starting 20 weeks before the Te Anau Spring Challenge or 14 weeks before the Hawkes Bay Spring Challenge (on 30th May 22), these plans progress through phases to build your fitness to its peak performance. Each week typically contains a workout each day, with weekend adventures for you and your teammates. Although not necessary, I recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with a GPS watch (such as a Garmin).

Training Plans available for beginner and recreational athletes for:

  • 3hr Spring Challenge Te Anau or Hawkes Bay,
  • 6hr Spring Challenge Te Anau or Hawkes Bay,
  • 9hr Spring Challenge Te Anau or Hawkes Bay, and
  • Bridging programme from Te Anau to Hawkes Bay (if you are doing both)

These training plans will help build your fitness as you prepare for the Spring Challenge and give you some great adventures in the great outdoors with your teammates.
