Plan Description

Hi Folks ,
Are you nervous about taking the next step towards receiving structured training for an olympic tri ? Dont be, as i can help , this plan is going to help you organise your life and get fit to race . This plan is aimed at somebody with a base level of fitness , perhaps youve completed a sprint tri but with no structured training and you are looking to progress ?
We build the weekly hours trained starting at 3.5 and peaking at 5.5. Most weeks include two rest days and we step back in volume every fourth week to adapt, rest and see where we are at. There is a small strength and conditioning element to this plan as there should be in all but its very simple and you need no equipment for that , in fact you can do the s&c sessions anywhere. You will need a heart rate monitor and ideally know your heart rate zones 1-5 but if not I can help with that. There is also a kit checklist attached to a session pre race so hopefully you don't forget anything on race day. I am here to help with any queries regarding the plan and you can email me at
I have been competing in triathlons for ten years and coaching for 5 years., I am a qualified British Triathlon Federation Level 2 Diploma coach and ive also completed training for strength and conditioning and open water swimming via BTF. I am currently coaching both juniors and adults of various ages and abilities. I basically coach from beginner upwards so I am very aware of the amount of questions somebody new to the sport has . I am a big believer that there is no such thing as a stupid question and you shouldn't be afraid to ask either , triathlon is a very welcoming sport and we are here to help.

Marks Tri Training MTT

Hi , Since i began my coaching journey i have been coaching a mix of juniors and adults , this has given me experience in coaching people at both ends of the scale from people who are absolute beginners to very capable athletes.
I have coached 1:1 with athletes covering distances between super sprint and full iron distance
I strongly believe that there is no such thing as a silly question especially for beginners and i am here to help with any queries without you having fear of embarrassment.
