Nick Patenaude

All plans by this Coach


6 Weeks

Plan Description

This program is designed to give you an introduction to training for middle or long distance triathlon The program is designed to improve already existent training, and the ideal candidate for this program will have some (though limited) knowledge on how to train for swimming, cycling, running, and strength training.
The program is based purely on RPE (Rating of Perceived Exertion) using a simple 1-10 scale. This means you don't need any fancy equipment, heart rate monitors, or GPS watches to get the work done. A simple stop watch is all you need!
Upon completion of this program, you can request the Testing Protocols from TriNerds by simply reaching out! You will be required to demonstrate proof of your completion of this initial program to a minimum of 80% in order to receive the Free Testing Protocols.
All the best in your journey, and I wish you success!
