You should be able to swim at least 2km, cycle 60km and run 10km before starting this plan.
Long distance racing is all about pacing and nutrition when it comes to race day. It is highly important to work out what nutrition and hydration works for you. On some of the longer weekend workouts it will give you a chance to practise using your nutrition and hydration. You should work out what works for you.
If you swim with a swim squad or do track sessions you can replace the swims and interval run sessions with your club workouts. Make sure your coach is aware of your planned race.
Good luck, if you have any questions or need the plan changed to suit your schedule email firstname.lastname@example.org
