Summary

The Olympic-distance triathlon is a fun challenge that lets your speed and endurance both shine. Neither the training nor the race itself should drain you from enthusiastic engagement in your other interests: work, family, hobbies. In this way, the Oly race fits your lifestyle well. In three swims, three rides, and three or four runs each week, this plan offers a balanced approach to your build for the Olympic distance. Simple weights routines, described both with and without weights machines, bolster your strength and power. Yoga complements the work you’re doing, building core strength, flexibility, and focus for the long race.
