This training plan is for the novice triathlete who wants to complete his or her first Olympic distance triathlon and can (in separate workouts) currently ride for 45 minutes, run for 30 minutes, and swim 200m without stopping.
We start with approximately 3.5 hours of training in week 1 and will build to between 6 and 8 hours of training.
Each discipline has at least two workouts per week, but only one workout a day on most weeks.
