Sprint Triathlon Training Plan | 8 Week Competitive Build | Intermediate
Tammy SlauenwhiteAll plans by this Coach
This sprint triathlon training plan is an 8-week competitive build. Sprint distance: 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 can be used by a strong and very fit beginner triathlete or intermediate triathlete with previous triathlon experience. It requires a base period to be completed prior to taking on this plan. Do not attempt this sprint triathlon training plan if you 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.
The sprint triathlon training plan is HR & TSS based. It has everything the triathlete needs at the competitive stage of training, including brick workouts, run intervals, cycling hills, core strength workouts (my videos), progressive builds, active recovery, rest days, stretching routines, and recovery weeks.
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. Email: email@example.com
