Ironman Training Programme

F4L Triathlon Training & Coaching believes that your Ironman training must be sustainable, consistent and balanced.  You can read all about that in out coaching philosophy.  However, it is even more important when an Ironman is involved. F4L Ironman & triathlon coaches have years of experience working with athletes training for an Ironman. Our Ironman Coaching will help you achieve your goal in the best possible way while limiting your risk of losing your job, friends and family along the way…. We treat triathlon as a single sport, not a collection of three single sports.  We can guarantee if you tried to train for each discipline like a single sport athlete for each of the 2.4-mile swim/112-mile bike/26.2 mile run requirements of an Ironman, you’d take on a schedule that would nosedive into over-training, injury, illness, joblessness and divorce! Ironman training requires a lot of time, energy and commitment.  Be honest about what you’re getting yourself into. No matter how fit you are, your body is going to need time to adapt to the jarring nature of running.  In other words, be patient.  At F4L Ironman Coaching we have a saying, “Hurry slowly” it is stolen from arguably the best iron distance coach on the planet, Brett Sutton. Without a doubt, there will be plenty more questions about subjects like equipment, day-to-day nutrition, recovery and technique… But for now make a start by contacting us and asking us about our ironman training programme - making the best investment for your season…
