All plans by this Coach


8 Weeks

Plan Description

This plan is for a triathlete with a strong running background. Weekend runs start at one hour easy base run, and hill repeat workouts of 1 minute x 6 start the first week as well.

Base running mileage going into the plan should be about 15-18 miles per week for the previous 3-6 weeks.

Weekend bike rides start at 90 minutes with the first week including blocks of short interval sets of 5 minutes each.

The plan uses intensity to help build short term power in both run & bike which will the transition to race pace brick efforts and race simulations in the 2nd half of the plan.

Swimming can be customized based on list of swim workouts that will be attached as a separate document to the plan.
