Plug this Powerman Sprint Duathlon training plan into your calendar 8 weeks before your race and come race day, you will kill it!

This duathlon training plan is an 8-week competitive build to race day for a powerman sprint distance duathlon. Example: 5 km run + 30 km bike + 5 km run. This plan would be great for other distances that vary, more or less by a few km for each leg, from the given example.

This plan is designed for the BUSY person juggling a full-time job and family. It is best suited for intermediate athletes and requires a base period to be completed prior to taking on this plan. Do not attempt this training plan if you are a beginner or have not taken the time to build a proper base. Even though most workouts are short, there are several high intensity and demanding workouts in this plan.

The plan is HR & TSS based. It has everything the duathlete needs at the competitive stage of training, including brick and double brick workouts, run intervals, cycling hills, mini duathlon race simulation practices, core strength workouts (my videos), progressive builds, active recovery, rest days, stretching routines, and recovery weeks.

If you use this plan to train for a duathlon race, I would love to know how it worked for you. Feedback is always welcomed! Good luck with your training, racing, and all your adventures. ~ Coach Tammy | tammy@gofitlife.ca
