Plan Description

A low volume plan for aspiring 140.6 athletes who are time crunched. With a peak week that is only a touch over 9 hrs and most weeks no more than 8 hrs, this plan is ideal for those who need to juggle training around busy lives.
The plan is uses power metrics on the bike and %threshold pace on the swim and run, but these can be altered if the athlete has other preferences or equipment.
Most weeks are designed so that there are spare days that can accommodate sessions that need shifting around but remember that a clear 24 hrs should be left between any two high intensity bike or run sets.
This plan will get you through your first 140.6 and leave you with a good base on which to develop for your next big effort.
