Plan Description

This 20 week half distance training plan is for the intermediate to advanced triathlete who has a solid base (including aerobic and race specific / speed work) looking for a high performance training plan to take then from final base preparation into a final build and taper period.

This plan includes all pertinent aspects: Aerobic endurance, speed, speed endurance / threshold and will test your fitness. There is a welcome message and training plan guide included. It will provide valuable information regarding the plan, as well as details on training philosophy and methodologies. Paired with the included plan guide that will outline and explain all aspects of the plan, you should have all the information you need to take your training to the next level.

This plan also includes baseline tests for your swim, FTP testing for your bike, and a regression rate test for your run. You'll then utilize provided spreadsheets that will take the metrics you generate from these tests and create your heart rate or power training zones for all training. You'll have the opportunity to re-test throughout the training plan to ensure that your HR, power zones, and swim send-off times adjust as your performance improves.
