Monday, April 24th marks twenty weeks until the gun goes off at the Black Diamond Triathlon. HIP HIP!
Raise the Bar has a Super-Simple 20-week to half Iron plan available on Training Peaks. The plan is designed for the athletes looking for a simple plan that will get them across the finish line. It's a low to moderate-volume plan that is appropriate for the less-experienced half ironman distance athletes or experienced triathletes who have kept their off-season volume relatively low and prefer a gentle increase in training hours. There are 3 swims/bikes/runs and a rest day.
The Black Diamond Half Iron Tri takes place in beautiful Western Washington. Even though it travels along the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, it has a surprisingly friendly lack of elevation. Athletes can expect a family-friendly park for the kids to play in, excellent direction and course marking, a big post-race meal (not skinny slices of pizza), and beverage garden to quench your thirst post-race.
There's also a Sprint Tri if that's more up to your liking.
