20 Weeks

Plan Description

Research suggests that between 70-90% of runners will get injured each year.  This statistic is slightly less for triathletes due to the cross-training nature.  However, injury is still very prevalent.   Therefore, the main goal of this training program is to provide you the opportunity to participate in the sport you love while minimizing your risk for injury.  Thankfully the effort you put into injury prevention strategies is the same focus that will provide you with greater speed and power.  Thus, participation in this training program is a win-win to foster optimal performance.  Injury be gone!


Designed for the advanced Olympic distance triathlete, here are the specifics of the 20-week training program:
·      Progression through four build cycles and one race specific cycle, all followed by a recovery week.  6 hours (minimum) to 11.5 hours (maximum) time requirement per week prior to tapering and racing. 
·      Each week typically consists of 2-3 swim workouts, 2-3 bike workouts, 3-4 run workouts and at least 2 strength training workouts.  One day per week, Friday, is designated as a day off.  However, this rest day can be flexible as your schedule requires and guidance is offered to adjust for this need.  
·      Injury prevention strategies are built into the workouts each day/week.   Other training tools complement these workouts to minimize risk for injury and put the athlete in the position for greater speed and power. 
·      Training plan starts on a Monday. Therefore, it can be applied to start on any Monday or it can be set to end on race day. 
·      Training plan assumes your target race is on a Sunday.
·      Training plan uses common language and little to no abbreviations to try to decipher.


·      Prior to beginning this training program, you should be able to complete a 40 minute or approximately 1600-yard (or meter) swim, 60 minute ride and a 20 minute run.  
·      Training program will build you up to 3000 yards (or meters), 8 miles of running and 40+ miles of cycling.
