Laura Bruck Renzelman
This plan is for athletes who have some triathlon experience and are ready to build their training base in preparation for a summer season of strong racing. This plan is geared with athletes training for sprint and Olympic distance races Athletes should comfortably be able to swim 1500-2000 meters, run 45 minutes, and ride 60 min to start with this plan. I have also included optional swim strength workouts for those not able to access a pool on a regular basis and triathlon focused strength, and mobility sessions. For strength and mobility sessions you will need a set of heavy and light dumbbells, a mini band and a long band with handles.
