All our triathlon training programs are individualized to suit you and your goals and delivered using a premium online training account with TrainingPeaks. Each program is individually prepared using your availability and structured around your work, family and life commitments. The training programs can be accessed, viewed and updated from anywhere that you have an active internet connection. You can even view and analyze your own data on your smartphone within seconds of finishing a training session once data from your devices has been uploaded.
Training Program Structure
Your training program will be planned around your races and goals in a format that is easy to follow and understand. Expect your training program to be populated with individual training sessions several weeks in advance so that you can view what your coach has planned for you.
Individual Training Sessions
The content of each individual training session is descriptive and will outline:
- Goals and purpose of the session
- Training zones that you need to work in (Power, Heart Rate, Cadence or Specific Swim & Run Paces)
- Training intervals and intensity levels
- Any technical swimming, cycling or running drills that are part of the session
Downloadable Indoor Cycling Training Files
Athletes with a Wahoo Kickr or a Computrainer will benefit from the coach supplying their training files in a downloadable format that they can insert into software such as Trainerroad, Zwift or Perfpro. This is our preferred method for supplying training sessions for indoor cycling sessions and these files will appear in the attachment tab of your TrainingPeaks session plan.
Downloadable Run Training Files
For athletes with compatible Garmin devices, we actively prepare sessions within their Garmin Connect account so that your run training sessions will sync with their device before their session begins. This enables you to go for a run and the watch will let you know exactly when the intervals start and stop. This service is available for athletes on Gold and Platinum accounts.
Our training programs allow the athlete to quickly and briefly provide their coach with feedback following a session. We encourage all our athletes to write simple comments following their sessions so that your coach can help monitor your progress. Your comments might indicate how you felt during the session or they may be used for your coach to understand your training file. For example – “Felt great, that last set was tough” or “Ran out of time and only completed 3 of the 4 sets”.
The format of our training programs allows you to access training information easily and provides your coach with the data that he needs to provide objective feedback
