The Ironman in Hawaii is the final goal for all passionate triathlon athletes. This race is special, has extreme conditions, is in extreme environment, everything is extreme.

But the final goal after 140 miles / 226 km is proud!

3,8 km (2.36 miles) swim, 180km (111 miles) bike, 42km (26 miles) run.

On Aug 27th I finished my 1st Ironman in Podersdorf, Austria.

But first things first …

In 2003 a friend of mine told me about triathlon and he said that he will finish an Ironman before the age of 36. I didn’t dare to bet on this too. But from then on the thought about finishing an Ironman was always on my mind. My poor wife had to bear part of the burden because some holidays were moved or canceled, a lot of weekends spent for workouts and all the time she heard me talking about it.

Some time ago I had an interesting discussion with one of our members G√ľnther.

Is it better to train with time-limits (for example run 10 km with 5:03 min/km pace) or heart-rate-zone based.

TriCoreTraining is based on a heart-rate-zone system. This means that you train in certain heart rate zones and go as fast as you can under your current training conditions.

Heart-rate zones based training

I really appreciate this kind of training because in my almost 15 years of training experience I also tried to train based on time-limits.

For some time I trained with a real coach but soon my work and for money reasons I had to stop and find another solution for my triathlon training. I found triathlon training plans in the internet unfortunately they we pre-generated and therefore static.

I found out it’s very annoying to create my own triathlon training plans or to use static training plans for my triathlon training because they don’t react on illness, less time in busy times etc.

What is endurance training? Athletic activity that focused on aerobic performance (e.g., running marathons).

When I started 2003 my triathlon training, I didn’t know any fundamentals of endurance training. I just wanted to become fit. Then I registered for a triathlon race out of pure fun. After the race I realised that I have to change from unspecific training to specific training.
