Plan Description

she does tri“It's never too late to be what you might have been.” - George Elliot

Especially designed for female age group triathletes with full time jobs and other commitments, the single goal of this 18-week training plan is to set you up for YOUR Full Distance Triathlon (2.4-mi swim / 112-mi bike / 26.2-mi run) SUCCESS on race day.

coach krista schultzHand-crafted by USA Triathlon-certified coach and elite triathlete Krista Schultz, MEd, CSCS this plan encapsulates her exercise physiology expertise with more than a decade of experience as an endurance athlete and coaching hundreds of other athletes to success.

Starting 18 weeks before your target race (week 1 is race week), this progresses through three base periods and one build period (16.5-18 hrs max per week) prior to peaking and tapering. Each week typically contains 3x swims, 3x bikes and 3x runs plus 1 BRICK run. During the plan, you will build up to: 3,800 yards (or meters) swimming, 5-6 hours biking and 2.5 hours running. Your weekly schedule includes optional time allocation for strength exercises and a designated off day (Monday). We recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with perceived effort but you may use power as well.

Purchase of this plan includes the comprehensive 40+ page ENDURANCEWORKS Triathlon Training Guide, which explains how to use your training plan, and, as an added bonus, Build and Maintain: Strength Training for Triathletes.

Prior to using this plan, you should be able to complete the following workouts:
• Swim: 500 meters or yards continuously
• Bike: 2 hours continuously
• Run: 60 minutes continuously or run/walk combination
