Plan Description

Designed for the intermediate triathlete in mind. This 16 week structured plan will prepare you for a Half Distance Triathlon (1.2m swim, 56m bike, 13.1m run). Each week typically contains 3x swims, 3x bikes and 3x runs plus 1 brick run. You will build up to: 3,500 yards (or meters) swimming, 3.5 hrs biking and 2 hrs running. Your long ride is Sunday, long run is Thursday and off day is Monday. Although not necessary, we recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with perceived effort; you may use a power meter for biking as well.

Before starting this plan, you should be able to complete the following workouts:
• Swim: 500 meters or yards continuously
• Bike: 90 minutes
• Run: 60 minutes
