12 Week Olympic Prep Plan (10 - 14hrs per week)


James Beckinsale

All plans by this Coach


12 Weeks

Plan Description

You have either gone through the whole process from Foundation building your skills and technique into Winter building your fitness and holding technique under more pressure and now you’re embarking on the final preparation to your Sprint Triathlon. Or you may be just tapping into this phase of your training to help you with your final preparation for your Olympic distance race.

On the whole this plan will use the polarised training model where the majority of the training will be in zones 1 & 2 with around 20 of the training in zones 4 & 5. That said some sessions you need to practice "race pace" and this is zone 3.

Most people are looking to target a Olympic Dist Triathlon
1. As its the next challenge up form a sprint
2. They do not have time to train for longer distances

The key is:
1) You are not injured
2) Your enthusiasm is high (you have not overdone the training to this point)
3) Technically you are sound
4) You have done the intensity sessions in the winter plan

Improved economy + increased training loads + psychological skills = faster & tougher athlete

After years of coaching athletes in person I wanted to help athletes who couldn’t engage with coaches or clubs personally. Rather than just providing online training plans, I have put together a number of resources including plans, videos and articles

For the training plans to become personal to you I’ve included profiling tools that will help set your individual training zones. I’ll also be posting training sessions and current thinking on social media.
