This Olympic Triathlon Base plan has triathletes swimming three times each week for up to 6000m, on the bike three times each week for about 3.5 hours total (including a few brick workouts), and running up to 3 hours each week.
This happy-medium plan is aimed at reasonably experienced Olympic-distance triathletes, or even very experienced sprint distance triathletes, ready to move up to the international distance. This plan is designed to help athletes develop a firm base of fitness in all 3 disciplines, in preparation for potential top-10 age group placings, on no more than 8 hours per week.
