All plans by this Coach


8 Weeks

Plan Description

This plan will help a beginner or intermediate triathlete prepare for an Olympic-distance triathlon (1500m swim, 25 mile bike, 6 mile run). Training volume progresses from 6-9 total hours.

If this is your first time training for an event of this distance and you're not already training consistently with 3-4 hours a week of endurance activity, we would recommend following the sprint distance training plan for the first 4 weeks before beginning this training plan. The sprint plan will help you to establish a consistent training routine and provide volume targets that will allow the body to adjust more easily to the increased training stress.

Check out the attached notes page for additional information that will help you to understand the workouts you will find in this plan.
