You don’t know me but I’d just like to say thank you. 4 IM’s ago I had a PB of 9:15 training 25hrs+ a week.
My first race on your program I went sub 9 (8:58), went to Kona and came 12th in 9:23. 6 weeks later I went 8:49 in IMWA winning and coming 9th overall with the 5th fastest overall bike split. The gains I have made are undeniably due to your program and I’m just getting faster and hungrier. You deserve all your success. So simple, yet genius.Barry Oelofsen

How fast should the speed work in your training plans be done?
When running short intervals, never run all out, instead think 90%. There is little additional return going faster and the risk of injury rises significantly. Instead look for a good turnover and rhythm to your running. For moderate, medium then mad workouts, the last 1/3rd at mad is meant to be pushing the pace, but as we have already been running at a good effort by the time we arrive at the last 1/3rd (and it is a continuous run), our speed is already governed by our fatigue. We are not sprinting, just pushing the pace with what we have left! The same as in the last part of a triathlon race. On race day the race is ‘just like training’.
Is the Iron Distance program 20 hours maximum or average week?
The Trisutto.com Advanced Iron Distance training plan commences at 18 hours per week for the first month, and builds a little to be 22 hours at it’s largest the last month before the race (except race week which reduces somewhat). There are two workouts on most days (although it is possible to put some back to back in the week if necessary. For example swim then run instead of one in the AM and one in the PM). Mid week workouts are in the 60 – 90 minute range with the long bike and long run on the weekend (along with some short recovery swims). If your weekend falls on days other than Saturday/Sunday simply move the plan forward X number of days to suit. i.e. think of the plan as Day 1 to Day 7, not Monday to Sunday. Rest days are taken as needed, or when best suits with other commitments.
