Welcome to the Long Course Seminar

You have officially started on the path to becoming a much improved triathlete! Here is some important admin information for you to review before your actual course begins.

Note: You will receive Lesson #1 very soon and subsequent lessons 1-2 days apart.

Purpose of the Course

  • Bring you several years up the self-coached triathlete learning curve, as we share with you the lessons we have learned as coaches, athletes, and leaders of a 500 member long course triathlon Team.
  • Give you practical tools you can use to organize and manage your own long course season and training week.
  • Totally redefine your understanding of endurance training, freeing you from out-dated methodology and preparing you for a great season!

Course Syllabus

Lesson 1: Introduction, ROI, Work, and Season Planning

In this first lesson we’ll introduce you to the concept of fitness as the ability to perform work. Next, we’ll give your job description, as a Time Investment Manager (self-coached athlete), and finally describe how we suggest you lay out your long course triathlon season.

Lesson 2: The Basic Week

Next, we’ll introduce you to the Basic Week, the template training week you’ll use to effectively and efficiently manage your training.

Lesson 3: Race Scheduling

In this lesson we’ll discuss how and where to schedule races and big training weeks. We’ll also provide you with proven tools to adjust your training schedule to accommodate A, B, and C priority races.

Lesson 4: Common Long Course Training Pitfalls and Race Execution

In this final lesson, we’ll teach you how to avoid the training mistakes we’ve seen too many triathletes make. We’ll also introduce you to our thoughts on race execution.

Thanks again, we look forward sharing our Ironman® coaching, training and racing knowledge with you!
