Plan Description

This 24-week long course triathlon (140.6) plan is designed for first time long course athlete, who has completed a half distance triathlon (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run) in the past and/or has completed at least 2+ seasons of triathlon racing of any distance.

The plan features at least 3-4 days of cycling, 3 days of swimming and 4 days of running (some running days are low duration--under 20-30 minutes). The plan also includes 2 days of functional strength work.

Before starting this plan, athletes should be able to swim 2000-2500 yards (continuously or as masters' style sets), bike 2-3 hours continuously, and run 75-90 minutes continuously.

The plan includes benchmark testing to calculate HR and power zones, along with a calculator to determine those zones. Intermittent testing is also included.

The plan allows for the inclusion of a half distance race as a tune up race during week 8. If your specific race isn't @ week 8, you may contact Coach Maria @ maria@nolimitsendurance.com for advice for how to re-arrange the plan.

If you would like for assistance and coach-guidance, 30-60 minute consults are available for 20% off the current rate. Consultations can be done via phone, Zoom, or similar service for advice about pacing, nutrition, questions about zones, and the like. Athletes local to Westminster/Arvada, CO can arrange for in-person consults as well. Note: these consultations are not included in the original purchase price of this plan.
