Plan Description

The Beginner Half Triathlon Distance plan is geared towards those who've done olympic distance triathlons and are ready to step up to a longer distance. It includes 2-3 swim workouts each week, 3-4 run workouts each week, 2-3 bike sessions each week, brick sessions, functional strength sessions, rest days, and field tests to set up your run, bike and swim heart rate and pace zones. Before starting this plan, you should be running at least 3 times per week, 45-60 min each session, be able to swim 2000 yards at a time, and be biking at least twice per week, 60 min each session.
