Target Athlete

This plan is designed for any triathlete, beginner or experienced, who needs or prefers a low-volume training plan for the Olympic distance. Before you begin, you should be comfortably able to swim and run for 45 minutes, cycle for 60 minutes, and complete at least four hours of aerobic exercise over seven days. The weekly training volume starts at approximately 6 hours in Week 1 and peaks at approximately 9.5 hours in Week 11.

100% Structured Workouts

This plan leverages the TrainingPeaks.com structured workout feature with pace-based run workouts and heart-rate based bike workouts. All swim workouts are pace-based. On supported devices, including many Garmin models, each workout can be exported to the device, which will automatically guide you through the session with duration, lap, and intensity prompts. Workouts do not have to be exported to be performed effectively, as the detailed descriptions provide all the information you need to successfully complete the workout
