Plan Description

This a 10 week plan for the BEGINNER athlete looking to undertake a Duathlon. The plan will suite people who have no previous experience in participating in such an event such as a

Super Sprint - 2.5km run / 10km bike / 1.25km run
Sprint - 5km run / 20km bike / 2.5km run

All workouts are written in plain easy to understand English and based on heart rate zones or Rate of Perceived Effort (RPE). If using heart rate you will require a suitable watch that you can view your heart rate whilst doing the workouts.

Whilst not the most accurate as every individual is different, the simplest method for determining your maximum heart rate is the "220 minus your age" method. Based on the derived number, we can calculate your zones which are applied in the plan. It is a good enough starting point for a Beginner to be able to exercise to heart rate.

For an example, if you are a 35 year old athlete, Maximum heart rate is 220-35 years - 185 beats per minute.

Zones for training:
Zone 4: 80-95% of 185 bpm = 166 to 175 bpm
Zone 3: 86-89% of 185 bpm = 159 to 165 bpm
Zone 2: 75-85% of 185 bpm = 139 to 158 bpm
Zone 1: 65-74% of 185 bpm = 120 to 138 bpm

After completing the 10 week plan you will have a a good fitness to complete your duathlon.
