Plan Description

Want to do a sprint distance triathlon but not sure where to start?
Already training for a triathlon but need structure and direction?
Have you had some time off and need some extra motivation to get back into a training routine?
This 5-week training plan is great for newbies or people coming back to training after time off. I have included detailed workout descriptions and plenty of variety.
The programme is designed to target the specific weaknesses that are common amongst entry-level triathletes.

I have been racing, studying and coaching endurance sports for my entire adult life. For me, endurance training isn't an afterthought or a chore, it's a way of life.

Early mornings, blisters, afternoon naps, getting excited about the latest Garmin release, that's who I am.
