Intermediate Sprint Triathlon Base Training Plan
Tammy SlauenwhiteAll plans by this Coach
❗️UPDATED FEB 5, 2021❗️
This plan has been updated to include the new notes feature. The low rating triggered me to revisit and revise the plan to make it better than before. I have added new features too, such as optional baseline test in the first week and a zone 2 sprint triathlon practice session at the end. This way users can measure their progress and identity weaknesses and strengths for the next stage of their training. Keep in mind this is only a 4-week plan. Ideally, I would suggest 8 - 12 weeks of base work when training for a sprint triathlon, depending on the athletes current fitness level and previous training experience. If you have questions about this plan, please email me.
This plan is most suitable for the intermediate triathlete beginning their base training (base 1) for a Sprint Triathlon. This plan uses max heart rate to establish trainining zones in each workout. It focuses mostly on duration (time under tension).
The training structure is simple enough to follow but progresses with each week and each workout. The intervals increase in time as the goal is to increase aerobic capacity. The plan requires at minimum 6 training hours per week in the first week. In the final week, the athlete will have over 8 hours of training in that week.
A detailed strength training plan is also included and the user can download and print a copy to follow along. There is a guided workout video to go with it for demonstrations and instruction on proper lifting form.
