Length: This 20 week program is a Beginner Plan for 70.3 athletes. (It’s great for first-timers!) The plan averages 10 hours per week and has a max week of 14 hours 45 minutes. A typical week has 3 swims, 3 bikes, 3 runs, and 2 strength sessions.

Requirements: You should have a good base of an average of 5-7 hours of weekly training for the past four weeks. Going into this plan you should be able to:
  • Swim at least 1200 yards/meters
  • Bike at least 1 hour
  • Run at least 1 hour

Your first week will include:
  • 2200 yards/meters of swimming
  • 2 hours 40 minutes of cycling
  • 2 hours of running

You will build in your max week to:
  • 6250 yards/meters of swimming / 2550 yards/meters as your longest swim
  • 6 hours 20 minutes of cycling / 4 hours as your longest bike
  • 4 hours 50 minutes of running / 2 hours 20 minutes as your longest run

Your day off is Monday, your long ride (or long brick) is Saturday, and your long run is Sunday.

Our programs are designed for the age group triathlete who has a busy life with a full-time job, a family and/or other responsibilities. In this program, the longer workouts will be on the weekends, and the weekdays will consist of shorter workouts. There will be bike-run (or brick) workouts on most Saturdays beginning with week 8. Race simulation days are included in weeks 12 and 16. During the training plan, there is periodic testing to assess your fitness and adjust your training zones.

Our plans set YOU up for success. The main goal of this plan is to fully prepare you for race day. Alison incorporates training strategies with proven success records to ensure that your fitness is where it needs to be when you toe the start line.
