Plan Description

This is a 24 week Full Distance training program intended for the beginner and Masters age group triathlete.

The goal is to gradually build fitness while building confidence. Every week has a focus and every workout has a purpose. Bike and run workouts can be loaded onto your training device and swim workouts are timed based on your individual threshold speed.

With the busy athlete in mind, weekday workouts have light volume, which can be split between morning, afternoon, or evenings. Weekends include the long ride and run. I am happy to make modifications to workout days as requested.

By the end of the 24 week training cycle, you will have a high level of fitness required to successfully complete a Full distance Triathlon (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile run) event.

This plan incorporates TrainingPeaksโ€™ structured workout feature with heart-rate based workouts on the bike and run, and pace-based workouts for swim. This feature allows for workouts to be exported to some device models, such as Garmin, which will guide you through the training sessions.
