... "As a newcomer to the Long Distance, the chosen Beginner plan was perfect for me, even if I missed a training session now and then, it worked out great, and I never felt overburdened. The units were enjoyable and brought me safely to my goal. I would always recommend the plans to others"...

Half Ironman Training Advice
In general, it can be said that in preparation for the race, at least two training sessions per sport should be trained in one week.
In swimming, it is important that beginners should train shorter distances, from 50 m/y - 100 m/y. Later, when the swimming technique and endurance is better, the intervals should be increased to 200 m/y - 400 m/y and then further developed. A training session, for example can be, 15 times 100 meter/yard with 15 seconds break in between.

In cycling, units of about one hour should be completed at the beginning. If the training is done on the home trainer in winter, it is also possible to take a short break to relax and recover. In general, it can be said that the maximum duration of a training session should be about 15 - 20% longer than the time you will spend on the bike on the day of the race.
At the beginning of your training, the running training should be trained for about one hour (depending on the level of performance) with small breaks for recovery :-)
The running should be increased to a maximum duration of 2:00 hours in the basic endurance area, depending on the running time in competition. It should be taken care that the maximum running time in training exceeds the duration of the run in the competition, because running often becomes the most exhausting discipline at the end.
A common mistake made is, that many athletes train too much and too hard. This generally results from an assumed tightness of time and the desire to train more, many athletes put themselves under pressure and forget that a higher training quality is more valuable than a higher training volume.
As already mentioned, especially for this distance, it is not always an advantage to train with too high intensity. It should always be kept in mind that most of the energy in competition is provided by fat burning and only a small part by carbohydrate burning.
By the way, the Half Ironman Training Plan can also be easily performed by all working men and women with family and children, a support of the family is definitely an advantage :-).
It is not significant at what time the training is performed.
