A Duathlon is a multisport event that consists of running and cycling. Most often, they are composed of three legs (running, cycling, and running). They can vary in length; the most common standardized distances are Sprint (5-kilometer run, 20-kilometer bike, 5-kilometer run) and Olympic (10-kilometer run, 40-kilometer bike, 10-kilometer run).
A Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan is an excellent option if you want the wisdom and experience of a professional coach guiding your duathlon training, but don’t need or desire a coach to be watching over your training each day.
Any athlete can benefit from a Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan, whether you are brand-new to or experienced in duathlon. Being able to follow through with completing workouts without oversight is the main skill that is needed to successfully benefit from a Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan.
The process begins with a conversation so the coach can get to understand your abilities and goals. After learning more about your life obligations, what a typical training week looks like for you, and what you are seeking to gain from the Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan, the coach designs three (3) or more months of training for you.
Your Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan is delivered to you via Final Surge (a Final Surge account is free). You then follow the Training Plan independently until the end of the plan; no feedback or communication is included beyond when the Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan is delivered. At that time, you may repeat this process for another three (3) or more months.
During the time you are on a Custom-Built Training Plan, you will have access to monthly webinar sessions with other Full Circle Endurance athletes covering various topics pertaining to endurance sports.
There are two main differences between a Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan and Performance Coaching:
A Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan includes three (3) months of training at a time. The coach is writing the workouts within the plan based on what the coach reasonably expects the athlete will be able to do as they progress through the Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan. In Performance Coaching, the coach is delivering training one week at a time and is writing training based on what the athlete is actually doing in training.
A Duathlon Custom-Built Training Plan does not include any communication – to include edits or modifications to the Training Plan – beyond the initial conversation. It also does not include any analysis of the workouts that are completed. Performance Coaching includes workout analysis and consistent communication throughout the entirety of the training process.
If you decide that you’d like more communication with your coach, you may purchase Consultations in quarter-hour increments at a rate of $75 per hour. Alternatively, you may upgrade to Performance Coaching; credit will be given for the remaining portion of your Custom-Built Training Plan toward the fee for Performance Coaching.
