ARace Specific Training Plan
IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga is May 20, 2018. The first, Whiskey, leg of our Whiskey and Bourbon Tri Tour. IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga provides us an opportunity to check our fitness progression, our nutrition plan, gain experience in an ultradistance, several hours long, race and perhaps meet in person as a club for the first time.
Olympic Distance Tri Louisville is June 10, 2018. The second, Bourbon, leg of our Whiskey and Bourbon Tri Tour. Tri Louisville will provide many with their first and perhaps only opportunity to swim part of the IRONMAN Louisville Swim Course. Tri Louisville is a first class Olympic Distance Race. While the bike and run courses are not a part of the IRONMAN Louisville course while in Louisville we can tour both the bike and run courses giving participants an opportunity to begin formalizing bike and run training routes when they head home.
IRONMAN Louisville is October 14, 2018. The main event, BOURBON of the Whiskey and Bourbon Tri Tour. This is show time – What we’ve been training for! What all the webinars have been about! We will be race day ready!
