Plan Description

This plan is your go to 17 week plan to thoroughly prepare you for your best middle/ long distance triathlon performance.
The plan is built around a 3 week focussed block followed by a consolidation or rest week. Each mesocycle is broken down into 2 or 3 day training microcycles to ensure adequate rest and opportunity for training adaptation.

This training plan covers every element of your cycling and running performance to get you in peak shape.

Swimming sessions are planned but due to the individualistic needs of different swimmers, only a suggested duration swim is included. This is perfect if you already swim with a triathlon club.

To successfully complete this plan you will need access to a bicycle computer, heart rate monitor and a running watch. To get the most out of it a power meter on your bike and an indoor trainer would be hugely beneficial.
