Base Training is where we develop your endurance/stamina. If you were a car – think of this phase as making the engine!
The build period that would normally follow afterwards is where you train to race (or add gears to the car to continue my analogy)
This 16 week plan will help any beginner triathlete maintain their IRONMAN fitness in the off season or prepare for their first race a few months down the line based on 6 - 12 hours a week training.
Base or fitness/stamina development = 16 weeks
3 week progression:1 week recovery cycle
