I would like to have training plans for the 70.3 & 140.6 triathlons. You have it for Olympic and I really need it for these other distances like they have in Trainerroad. I need this feature or I will be forced to go back to Trainerroad.
When’s your first race?
Zwift Game Design
It’s April 7th, so I will need to start training in January at the latest.
Oceanside… I’ll see you there. And I think you’ll be happy.
Unrelated, is your SLTC = Salt Lake Triathlon Club? I figure it probably is, but it could be Salt Lake, St Louis, etc.
Yes, there will be a ton of there from the Salt Lake Triathlon Club. Are you saying that Zwift is launching a 70.3 and 140.6 training plans?
I asked about SLTC because we just started hosting bi-weekly SLTC group workouts run by the Duckworths.
As far as the other question, I was hired largely to help address structured training needs within Zwift. And that certainly includes long course triathlon. I do have a bit of background in that regard…
Awesome! I’ve done a few workouts with Rory Duckworth and I must say they are pretty intense rides. Looking forward to having the long course triathlon as an option. It a huge deal for a lot of folks who are training and don’t have a coach.
This gets my vote - got a 70.3 in June so plan to spend a lot of the winter on the Turbo and Zwift - a 70.3 training plan would really help!
I’m also looking for a 70.3 training plan as I’m racing my first one in June. I don’t have a coach and I would love it if there were 70.3 specific plans on here.
I’d be interested in seeing what Zwift (Jordan) puts up vs. what I’m planning for (Muncie 70.3 and Lousiville 140.6).
I also need a 70.3 Zwift Training Programme. Im Doing Staffordshire (UK) 70.3 in June. all help greatly appriciated.
+1 doing cairns 70.3 in June!
Definitely would like to see 70.3 and 140.6 training plans. STG 70.3 in May.
Here here. Another vote for at least 70.3 plans. It would make it a lot easier to stomach the recent price increase.
+1 for 70.3 and
+1 for 140.6 training plans
Fantastic idea. Count me in for a 70.3 training plan. I’m a complete novice at cycling. Owned a bike for 6 months and a turbo for 3 weeks. Got my first ever triathlon in June and it will be a 70.3. I have no idea what kind of training I need to be doing.
I would not suggest your first tri being a 70.3, it should be a Sprint or at the most an Olympic distance. How is your swimming, that is were most struggle.
This could help you get started with training: http://triathlon.competitor.com/2010/09/training/super-simple-ironman-70-3-triathlon-training-plan_12364
Paul, my first Tri was a 70.3 Ironman event, so it is possible. I borrowed a Wetsuit the day before and my first open water swim was the actual event. I loved every bit of it.
Hi Paul, That’s much appreciated. Thank you so much for sending me that link. I have a very strong swimming background so that won’t be a problem for me. I also completed the London marathon last year and have tried to keep some running in my weekly exercise regime. It is the cycling I have least experience with. I will try to sign up for some shorter tris, just to get used to how it all works, between now and June. Thanks again. I’ll have a good look at that link
Good to here that you are not starting from scratch. Most how start doing tri’s and decide that they need to do a 70.3 first tend to have a poor swimming background and fail miserably.
Make sure you do a lot of brick workouts to get use to running on after riding.
Biking being your weakest part is a problem I wish I had.
