Plan outline
Base Training is where we develop your endurance/stamina. If you were a car – think of this phase as making the engine!


This 16 week plan will help any beginner triathlete prepare for their first IRONMAN a few months down the line based on 6 - 12 hours training a week.


It is specifically designed for athletes over 50 years of age - as it uses a 2:1 recovery cycle and additional rest days that should minimize risk of over training injuries


Base or fitness/stamina development = 16 weeks
2 week progression:1 week recovery cycle
