Length: 12 weeks
Weekly Duration: The plan begins at 5 hours/week, and tops out at 10.5 hours/week. This includes core work.
Ability level: Intermediate
This 12-week plan is ideal for an athlete with at least 1 year of previous duathlon/triathlon/running experience, who will be attempting to complete an olympic-distance. It is meant for athletes who have some existing fitness, as you should be able to ride for at least 60 minute continuously, and run for at least 45 minutes continuously.
The plan includes information about how to set your zones for cycling and running. Cycling workouts are structured using power, with some cadence guidelines. Run workouts are structured primarily by heart rate. Athletes are also given instructions on how to gauge RPE to match up with the zones.
Prior to starting this plan, you should be able to run 45-50 minutes continuously, and ride your bike for 60-75 minutes continuously. The plan includes 4-5 rides per week, and 4-6 runs per week (including transition runs). It also includes core workouts, and suggestions for pre-run activation.
This plan does not come with regular coach correspondence. However, anyone who purchases the plan may have a one-time email consult - email@example.com. I recommend you take the time to review the entire plan and take note of any questions you have. Then, email them to maximize this correspondence. If you'd like a phone or video consult, you get 20% off the current rate.
