Plan Description

This is a 12 week training plan geared towards first time sprint triathletes or beginner triathletes. The plan is written based on an effort scale.

100% is the athletes 1 hour maximum output. Most of the training days with this plan will be based around 50-60% effort which will help build fitness but not require a lot of extra recovery.

This plan is written assuming that the athlete understands how to swim at the basic level. All swim workouts focus on distance and effort, but not drills.

As the race/event gets closer, the duration and intensity of all three disciplines (swim/bike/run) will increase.

All of the running in this plan is structured in a way to accommodate all fitness levels (runners/walkers)
