This is a training plan created by Endurance Strong is designed to prepare an Novice Duathlete for a Half Iron Distance Duathlon Race (5k/56mi/13.1mi or similar). On Non-Recovery Weeks this plan ranges from 8.5-13.25hrs/wk and 550-850TSS/wk. Recommended starting fitness would be a CTL in the high 40's or 50's, which our Novice Base Training Plans should arrive you at. This plan has notes on how and when to incorporate strength training but no other strength training guidance. Endurance Strong also offers this same Training Plan with a full Strength Training Plan included at a slightly higher price point (Best Value), as well as separate Strength Training Plans. This plan generally follows the sequence of:
- Monday - Off
- Tuesday – Run Intervals (Track) and Shorter Endurance Rides
- Wednesday - Easy Run and Strength Training
- Thursday – Bike Interval / Threshold Workouts and Shorter Endurance Runs
- Friday - Easy Bike Ride
- Saturday – Bike Heavy Brick Workouts and Strength Training

*Last but not least, 10% of Endurance Strong's net profits goes to charity, so Thank You for your support! For more information about the creator of this training plan please visit EnduranceStrong.com
