Trying to sort out training plans for next seasons 70.3 just wondering who buys training plans who DIY's and who uses a coach and how you fit all these plans around work and chasewater sessions
Read the Don and Melanie Fink book version 3. It contains plans that go into more detail that the free ones. It covers the important fundmentals extremely well in lemans terms such as heart rate based training, gradual adaption, intervals etc.
I'm using TrainXhale online and base my training from the free training plans at 220triathlon.com. They provide a good base structure and I just amend the volume as needed. I really like TrainXhale though, useful to visualise and track
In the past not used a plan, trained with others & concentrated in getting distances done in training. For next yrs IMW just started using a coach last month for the 1st time, as I want to race to my best ability possible.
