Plan Description

Commit. Train. Perspire. Believe. Overcome. Achieve.

The primary goal of this 18-week training plan is to prepare you to EXCEL in YOUR International-distance AQUABIKE (1,500m Swim / 40km Bike) race.

Crafted by USA Triathlon-certified coach and former pro triathlete David Glover, MSE, MS, CSCS, this plan encapsulates his passion for the sport, his experience from completing 100+ triathlons and his success in coaching hundreds of triathletes.

Starting 18 weeks before your goal race, this plan progresses through two base periods and two build periods (10 hrs max per week) prior to peaking and tapering the last two weeks. Following the first base period, each week typically contains 3x swims and 4x bikes plus 3 optional strength workouts. You will build up to: 3,000 yards (or meters) swimming and 2 hrs biking. Your long ride is Saturday and off day is Monday. Although not necessary, we recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with perceived effort; you may also use a power meter for cycling, too.

Prior to using this plan, you should be able to complete the following workouts:
• Swim: 300 meters or yards continuously
• Bike: 60 minutes

Purchase of this plan includes our comprehensive 40+ page Triathlon Training Guide, which explains how to use your training plan plus email access to David Glover at any time for questions that you may have about this plan.
