This program is generated for people who have some experience in Triathlon, or who are quite confident in there training.
Made from myself (Ex Olympic New Zealand professional and Olympic Triathlete), this program should give you a good kick in the right direction. 8 weeks is enough time to get some solid training in and feel the benefits of it.
Do not get carried away and go too hard early on, trust the process!
To do this program i would recommend being able to:
- Swim 800m non stop, or be able to complete 2000m in a swim session
- Bike 90 minutes
- Run 45 minutes
There are swim programs in the descriptions, and videos or links for drills.
A core session 1 x per week.
Keep the consistency up, you may feel good after 1 week, but by the 3rd week it will take start to take it's toll. This is just your body telling you it is changing and adapting.
- Having Electrolytes with you
- Recovery shake after longer or hard sessions
- Eat well
- Get good sleep
- Drink plenty of fluids
Go out there and enjoy the process!
