This ten-week olympic plan is a simple to follow plan for beginner to intermediate triathletes. It is a low-to-moderate-volume plan that is appropriate for beginners and also those who have experience in the sport of triathlon, but have limited time to train. The plan prescribes 2 swims, 3 bikes, and 2 to 3 runs per week. The weekly volume ranges from 5 to 9 hours. This is a Monday to Sunday plan, so the plan should be applied to your Training Peaks account with a Monday start date. If your race is on a Saturday, we suggest modifying the final week, rather than starting the plan on a Sunday, so that your long workouts still fall on the weekends. Monday is the rest day as this plan is written and the 4th and 7th weeks are rest weeks.
