Long Course Training Plan - Advanced

20 Weeks

Plan Description

This is the plan I use when I have raced successfully at the long course events. Its best for the athlete who is experienced and is looking for a Worlds slot. It is best for someone who feels good in all three disciplines. The expectation is that you are beginning this program with a solid base. That you are running 10-15 miles a week, biking 50-60 miles a week, and swimming 6k yards or meters. If you purchase this plan, feel free to reach out to me via email for limited support, or full support if you choose to hire a coach. I am an older athlete so there is plenty of rest scheduled into the plan.
