CSCS, RYT200, IRONMAN Certified Coach, USA Cycling Coach, TrainingPeaks Power Certified, Stacy Sims’ “Women Are Not Small Men” Certified

Whether you are beginning to train for your first endurance event, want to take your next season up a notch, or are ready to take the step from recreational athletic participation and fitness towards structured training and racing, I can help you reach your racing and fitness goals.

Beginning with a conversation about your athletic history, personal background, work, life and race schedules, I develop and then help you follow a structured training plan using research-based techniques for building fitness and detailed data analysis, communicating with you regularly along the way to adjust and revise.

Training Plans

Complete Training Plans

If you have the skillset and desire to follow a training plan on your own, are a recreational racer, or just need some general volume progression guidance, I have developed complete training plans which can be broadly applied.

  • Built in TrainingPeaks
  • Power and heart-rate (HR) based workouts
  • Structured workouts for use with a smart trainer
  • Sport- and phase-specific strength workouts appropriate to those with prior exposure to free weights, and knowledge of how to use them safely and with good form, who are not currently following an annual strength training program
  • View sample workouts before you buy

12-Week 50 km Marathon Nordic Ski Training Plan

16-Week Intermediate (2-4 years of experience racing at 70.3 distance) Ironman® 70.3® (half distance) training plan built around three Base and two Build phases with a recovery week every 3rd week. The plan culminates in a 3-week taper into the race.

Build/Peak Phase Cycling Training Plans

Short (4- to 12-week) training plans built for multi-discipline cyclists (summer mountain bikers or road cyclists who race cyclocross), cyclists competing in more than one “A” race in a season, or year-round recreational cyclists with an existing sport-specific aerobic base who wish to focus as they get close to a goal race.

This training plan is designed to tie-on to your summer sportive, road racing, gravel or mountain bike fitness and get you cross-ready. You should aim to coincide the final week of the plan with a weekend "A" race.

This training plan is intended to follow up to a recently completed 3-5 hour duration bike race or full- or half-distance (Ironman® or Ironman 70.3) triathlon.
