Thursday Training Plan: Ironman or Open Water Swim PB

I’ve taken my most popular training plan and given it a make over for 2020. I’ve taken the 12 Weeks to an Ironman Swim PB – Swim Faster with Smarter Training and I’ve modified to to expand the programme from 12 weeks and include an option for more than 3 swims per week.

Summer’s Nearly Here, I’ve got Heaps of Time To Train For Ironman…..Yeah Right

I’ve signed up for Ironman when the entry fee was nice and cheap, but I didn’t do much over winter. Someone told me there were 18 weeks to go but that was a couple of weeks go. I’d better get my A into G and get this training thing sorted.

Saturday Swim Session: Rachel Joyce’s Pre-Kona Swim Set

Rachel Joyce often is the first out of the water at events she races. She ahs finished runner up at Kona twice and also won the ITU World Long Distance Champs. This is an epic set she has used successfully in her Kona build ups and is great for developing race speed and stamina. This session is perfect for Ironman and Olympic distance triathletes or people doing longer Ocean Swims.

UltraHumps – Can Ya Do An Ironman…My Story!

I discovered Ironman simply by chance which I will describe in this blog, I was intrigued, in my mid-forties, but also over weight, high blood pressure, unfit, couldn’t swim, didn’t know how to use clip in shoes on a bike let alone know where the gears were in the brakes, ate crap food, drank to much alcohol and when I look back I was on a path of self destruction. So when I turned a leaf and signed up for my first Ironman ‘then’ decided to change my ways described above, people even told me or laughed in my face that I was kidding myself and couldn’t do an Ironman… This is my story to hopefully encourage others, Ironman motto after all is “Anything Is Possible”!
