Plan Description

This is a 12 week sprint plan - designed for those planning to do their first sprint triathlon - 750m swim/20km ride/5km run.

This program is designed to be sustainable around work & children etc. Energise coaching provides easily achievable, sustainable training programs.

Plan is based on time for run/cycle and approximate time/distance for swimming therefore the plan doesn't reflect the total distance. The plan is characterised by a slow build in training commitment, followed by a 1 week taper. The plan mostly follows the 2-2-2 principle, two sessions per leg, per week.

There are instructions under the work outs to help with terminology and exercise descriptions.

Please email contact@energisecoaching.com.au with any questions. We will answer most questions within 12-24 hours.

Peta from Energise Coaching coaches athletes of all levels and abilities. As an age group athlete herself, she relates to the need to balance training with work and children while still achieving improvements in performance.

Equipment required;
pull bouy, fins

Energise Coaching - triathlon, running, swimming

I believe in sustainable training around living life. I see too many people burning out when age group athletes should be able to enjoy their sport, have time for other things, while still seeing solid performance gains. I offer personalised training programs & coaching or group coaching services to swimmers, triathletes and runners to suit lifestyle and performance goals.
