Subject: Advanced Full Ironman Triathlon Training Plan- 17 Week
Has anyone used this training plan (found in the training plan section of this website)? I now have one IM under the belt (13 hours) and would love to go faster next year (12 hours or less). Is this the one for me?

I haven't used it, so can't comment specifically on the plan.  But the questions to ask yourself are things like, is the plan one that I can follow reasonably well?  Do I fit the profile of the athlete it is designed for (  Is it much more than I am used to doing?  Much less?  I am sure that plan can be used by someone with your goals.  I have no idea if it is a good plan for you.

There are many ways to get to your goal.  The specific IM plan you choose to follow, provided it approximates the above criteria, is among the least important of the things that will get you there.

Using a high-volume schedule for many months is not the best tactic. Build speed and skill several months out, and then transition to a high-volume IM plan.

This training plan has only 2 workouts per sport per week and peaks at 7.5 hours per week of training. Use this plan if you are time constrained or if you want to focus more on your family.

This program is a beginner plan to bridge you from an a Half Ironman to Ironman using a HRM with the confidence that you can complete the race without difficulty.

This plan is an advanced plan in terms of volume and intensity and appropriate for someone who is looking to go under 5:00 and as fast as 4:30. There isn’t a lot of fluff in the plan.

Executing this full Ironman plan for 17 weeks would give people with one Ironman under their belts very good preparation for a 2nd and 3rd. Preferably, you should have a 6:30 or faster HIM time.

This Intermediate 20 week plan is a quick ramp up in overall volume, but with 20 weeks to train only, it is a gradual and safe approach because of the alternating weeks of the long run/bike.

This training plan is written to prepare you for your first Ironman. While just a beginner’s plan, the hours per week start at a significant 8 hours.
