For the ninth consecutive year we will be offering a 12 week training program created specifically for the Vineman race course(s). These programs will be designed for the beginner or intermediate long course athlete allowing you to take the guesswork out of your training. Over the last eight years these programs have proven quite valuable for those that have needed guidance and detailed information while preparing for the Vineman events.
The programs are designed by Half Vineman and Full Vineman veteran Dave Latourette. A USAT "Expert Level" Coach and USA Triathlon All-American, Dave is a multiple Ironman and two time Hawaii Ironman World Championship finisher. Most importantly he knows the Vineman course and has a PR of 9:49 at the Full Vineman. To read more about Dave and his coaching philosophy go to: www.traintoendure.com
Once registered you will receive an informational email on March 1. You will then receive the first block (the program gets emailed out in 3 blocks of training) of training the week before the program is to begin. The program will begin on May 6.
Each program will have daily instructions regarding the discipline(s) to train in, duration of the training session, intensity of the training session, plus information specific to tapering and resting for the race. Along with your training program you will receive additional information e-mails that have details relative to long course racing nutrition, Vineman course specifics, Sonoma County climate, special tips regarding the week of training you are currently in, and race day strategy. The best part of the programs is that they are affordable and specific to the Vineman course.
The 12 week program is $95 and can be purchased separately from your race registration.
