Summary

This programme will take you through to your Sprint Triathlon Race Day in 8 weeks time. We're using RPE or Rate of Perceived Exertion to perform your sessions so no need for a heart rate monitor or power meter on your bike. If you have this, fantastic but using RPE you're going to learn how below and above race-pace effort will feel so come race-day, you'll nail it!
