Plan Description

This plan is for somebody who can swim 50 meters/yards (one lap) in the pool, bike for a sustained effort at 30 minutes and has run a stand alone 5K.

We will start by discussing efforts and zones by using the Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) scale and applying those to zones.

Zone1 will fall into 1-3 on the RPE scale and feels very light to easy
Z2 will fall into the 3-5 on the RPE scale and feels moderately light to moderate but still in conversation effort
Z3 is 5-7 on the RPE scale and is moderate with heavy breathing to mod/hard but able to talk a few words
Z4 is 7-9 on the RPE scale and is hard enough that you can't talk but you can hold this effort for 60 minutes
Z5 is a 10 on the RPE scale and is maximal effort
