“Did the local Bangs Lake OLY this am. Work works. My first OLY racing since last summer and after a full EN OS and EN training/racing IMCDA. Went 2:24, a PR by 24 minutes. Got 2nd in M55-59 AG. 10 min faster in swim (29′ split), 14 min faster on bike (1:05 split), 1 min faster on run (45′split). I lost 1 min in transition due to long run in from water verus prior PR. Go EN!!”
Please Note: These plans are for sale to non-members only. All Team EN athletes get every single one of these plans, including special private plans, for the one low monthly fee!
The Best Training Plan Is One You Can Execute
Forget fancy hour charts and the seeming allure of multiple century rides. You don’t need to be swimming 5,000 yards to be ready for an Ironman, and certainly not six months before your race actually happens! Every Endurance Nation Training Plan is refined each year with feedback from our Members and Plan Customers to ensure that it’s the most effective version.
“BOOOYYAAAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! Just finished my scheduled FTP test in week 12 of the IM plan getting ready for IMFL. New norm power = 325 with a VI of 1.01 and a TSS of 93.1 (1.16). My last test was 280 FTP just three months ago. Hard to believe that one year ago when I started EN my FTP was 227! Work Works!”
You Can’t Train Like A PRO Unless You Can Recover Like One
Volume is sexy to consider, but implementation is another story. To fit in 20+ hours of training means you’ll need to cut out sleep, recovery time, work time, family time and a myriad of other things. The worst part is, these are sacrifices that you don’t have to make. We know because before we drank the EN Koolaid, we tried the volume game…after months of sleeping at our desks, drinking Coke on the pool deck, and living 24/7 in lycra we decided there was a better way, and Endurance Nation was born.
“YOU WANT RESULTS??? I found real results with Endurance Nation. In two seasons with EN, I went from being a corporate couch potato, where my heavy exercise sessions were walking to the next meeting, to real WORK the EN way. 76 lbs and 3 IM’s later I am going to KONA!!! RnP and the EN team I can’t thank you all enough!!!! This is a 25 year dream come true.”
Not Just Another Training Plan
There are plenty of training plans and coaching services available online. We are different because we actively coach over 650 athletes to multiple finish lines each year. The level of feedback and data we have receive from our athletes each year would take the average coach over a decade to accumulate. Don’t wait for someone else to figure out what Endurance Nation already knows!
“I came to Endurance Nation after Rich’s race execution strategies helped me erase years of frustration at Ironman. If you are early into IM or HIM training and racing, the race execution strategies and practical knowledge here is worth the price of admission many times over, and is probably more valuable to a triathlete with less than 5 years of experience than ANY piece of equipment you can buy.”
