You're going to build fitness and confidence in yourself during this 14 week Half Distance Tri training plan from Coach Bree Soileau!
If you're brand new to the Half Distance Tri and looking to "just finish" it, then this plan will work well for you! Many "bucket listers" follow this training plan option.
This program is designed specifically for the triathlete that wants to achieve their goal of completing a Half Distance Tri and to do so with a strong race finish. This plan focuses on quality training with no speed work. Develop a solid foundation of triathlon fitness by conservatively and safely building endurance, all while maintaining proper form.
In addition to 14 weeks of swim, bike and run workouts, there are links to videos and pdfs for drills, heart rate and pace training, assessments, race preparation, mental preparation, nutrition, post-workout reflections, and more! Our goal is to prepare your mind and body so you have a strong and enjoyable race day experience.
Before you start this program, you'll need to be comfortable swimming 600 yards without stopping, cycling for 60 minutes, and running for 45 minutes. If you can do all that, you'll do just fine following this plan.
The first 6 weeks conservatively build in duration so you can build your base and work on skills. Weeks 7, 9 and 11 are Race Preparation weeks providing you the opportunity to practice race day pacing, nutrition and mental strategies. The final 3 weeks are a gradual taper to ensure you are recovered and ready to finish healthy and strong!
We know that for some, race day cut-offs can bring anxiety. To ease any possible concerns, make sure to review the attached documents on cut-off requirements. During your Race Preparation weeks take note of your paces to ensure it meets the Half Distance Tri cut-off requirement. We provide these opportunities in training to give you peace of mind.
