Plan Description

This is an full-distance triathlon training plan for beginner athletes looking to complete their first full-length event. It is recommended that athletes start this plan following 6-8 weeks of consistent endurance training in all three sports.

Key features of this plan will be a weekday intensity ride, short post-ride transition runs and long weekend workouts for both bike and run. Volume progresses throughout the plan and includes built-in rest weeks. The highest training volume will occur in weeks 9-11 and 13-15.

A half-distance race is also recommended around week 12 to help hone your race strategy. Look for events that will fall 6-8 weeks before your key race. If there is not a suitable race event, you can simulate the race as a training session instead.
