Designed for the NOVICE athlete, this is a 10-week program by Dave Scott - 6x Ironman World Champion and National Triathlon Coach for Team in Training.
Dave designed this program for the beginner or developing athlete. No experience is necessary in any of the disciplines, just a willingness to allocate 3 to 7 hours per week of training.
The entire 10-week program is progressive in distance and workload for all 3 disciplines. Your confidence in completing a sprint distance race will be reinforced throughout the entire program. Dave has also included different brick combinations that will reinforce your confidence as the weeks fly by.
This program may be set to start or end at any time for a goal race that takes place on a Saturday. If your race is on Sunday, please chose the Sunday version of Dave's plan.
Included: This plan comes with Dave’s comprehensive Triathlon Training Plan Guide explaining Dave’s training methodology and all the workout terminology plus video training tips by Dave covering optimal fueling, proper pacing, mental training tactics, race day strategy and more!
