Would love some insight here! I’ve looked at a bunch of online tri plans but they are one size fits all, and I have some bike racing, travel, and mid season events to factor in. I really would like a coach, but can’t swing it financially. So, I’m considering a custom training plan!
I’m training for a 70.3 in August, and have a few Olympic and sprints mixed into my schedule. I also Zwift race once a week, at least for the next couple of months. I’m not equal across all disciplines - my plan is to race the bike and run, but just survive the swim. And I’m fine with that! I want to get better at all 3, but really focus on the bike and run. I’m also a parent of 2 kids who play competitive baseball all across our region, which requires weekend travel and I don’t want to haul the Kickr around, but it does give me the possibility of exploring new places on the bike!
Questions for you all:
- Do you think a custom plan can address the racing, mid season events, and outdoor weekend rides (I don’t want to travel with my Kickr all the time). Like are they more customized than something else I’d get online?
- Do the custom plans still use the videos in the app (I really like using them)
- Have you been happy with your custom plan results?
- Anything else you think I should know?
