Plug this Sprint Triathlon plan into your calendar 8 weeks prior to your race and come race day, you will kill it!
This sprint triathlon training plan is an 8-week build to race day. 750m swim + 20km bike + 5km run. This plan would be suitable for other triathlon distances that vary slighted, more or less, by a few km for each leg.
This sprint triathlon plan is designed for the BUSY person juggling a full-time job and family. It is best suited for intermediate triathlete and requires a base period to be completed prior to taking on this plan. Do not attempt this sprint triathlon training plan if you are a beginner or have not taken the time to build a proper base. Even though most workouts are short, there are several high intensity and demanding workouts in this plan.
It has everything the intermediate triathlete needs at the competitive stage of training, including brick and mini-triathlon practices, run intervals, cycling hills, core strength workouts (my videos), progressive builds, active recovery, rest days, stretching routines, recovery weeks, and race taper.
If you use this plan to train for a sprint triathlon race, I would love to know how it worked for you. Feedback is always welcomed!
Good luck with your training, racing, and all your adventures.
