Plan Description

Training plan for relatively fit individuals (i.e. can bike 60 min, run 40 min and swim 500 yards continuously).

The plan keys off of your threshold heart rate for the bike and threshold pace for run workouts (i.e. % of your cycling threshold heart rate and your threshold running pace). To set your threshold heart rate and threshold running pace, refer to the following link:
