Length: This 16 week program is a Beginner/Intermediate Plan for 70.3 athletes - you should have successfully completed at least one 70.3-distance race in less than 7:00 prior to beginning this plan. The plan averages 10 hours per week and has a max week of 14 hours. A typical week has 2-3 swims, 3 bikes, 3 runs, and 2 strength sessions.

Requirements: You should have a good base of an average of 7-9 hours of weekly training for the past four weeks. Going into this plan you should be able to:
  • Swim at least 1700 yards/meters
  • Bike at least 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Run at least 1 hour

Your first week will include:
  • 3300 yards/meters of swimming
  • 3 hours 10 minutes of cycling
  • 2 hours 35 minutes of running

You will build in your max week to:
  • 5650 yards/meters of swimming / 2550 yards/meters as your longest swim
  • 6 hours of cycling / 3 hours 45 minutes as your longest bike
  • 4 hours 45 minutes of running / 2 hours 15 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. One race day fitness benchmark is included in week 12. There is testing in week 5 to update 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.
