Half Distance Triathlon 16 Week Intermediate Level with Power
Lana BurlAll plans by this Coach
Thank you for selecting this Half Distance Triathlon training plan, proudly presented by LB Endurance. A half distance triathlon typically consists of a 1.2-mile (or 2000-meter) swim, 56-mile (or 90-km) bike and 13.1-mile (or 20-km) run
The plan is intended for triathletes that have at least two years of triathlon experience and/or may have completed a half distance triathlon already. This athlete is looking to improve on their past performance.
To start this plan, you should already be capable of running three or four times per week, and able to finish a run of at least sixty minutes in duration. You should also be able to swim 1500 yards comfortably and bike for at least ninety minutes (or 25 miles).
Each training week includes two swim workouts, two or three bike workouts, three or four run workouts and two strength training sessions. You will also find one or two planned recovery days each week. Strength training, cross-training rest are important to maintain the body, mind and soul while preparing for a half marathon. Swim workouts are given as time and/or distance targets.
Bikes are time based and utilize power for training zones. Runs are time based and use pace for interval targets. Be sure your bike power and run pace threshold is set up in TrainingPeaks (settings) and on your training device (ie Garmin watch). All bikes, some runs and some swims are provided as Structured Workouts that can be automatically downloaded to your training app, allowing easy use with virtual platforms like Zwift.
Strength workouts use primarily bodyweight exercises and can often be performed without typical gym machines, but you can substitute similar exercises that you are familiar with.
The plan also includes several tips and reminders to help you prepare for an enjoyable race day, including guidance on race fueling, transitions, gear, race planning and hydration.
Please have a doctor’s approval before starting this, or any exercise program.
