Featuring the proven 80/20 intensity balance described in Fitzgerald and Warden's bestselling book 80/20 Triathlon, Half Distance Level 0 training plan will provide you with the same workout structure used by the most successful triathletes in the world.

Before you begin, you should be comfortably able to swim and run for 45 minutes, cycle for 60 minutes, and complete at least three total hours of aerobic exercise over seven days.

80/20 Endurance

80/20 Endurance

80/20 Endurance is the creation of Matt Fitzgerald and David Warden. Based on the breakthrough books 80/20 Running and 80/20 Triathlon, runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes improve the most when they consistently do 80 percent of their training at low intensity and the other 20 percent high intensity. The typical endurance athlete spends only 50-70 percent their total training time at low intensity. The solution? An 80/20 training plan that ensures the optimal intensity balance.
