This simple and easy-to-follow, 12-week plan is intended for the beginner training for his/her first sprint-distance triathlon (about S-400/B-13 miles/R-5k) who has little or no experience with swimming, biking, or running. It includes 6 workouts per week with 2 in each sport plus weightlifting which is optional. There are also other weekly optional workouts suggested that you can choose to do if you have time and want to train more in any given week. The plan is based on Joe Friel's book, Your First Triathlon.
(Note that this plan does not include expected workout TSS and does not use the "workout builder" format. TSS, however, is still calculated on completion of every workout. Those plans with "NEW" in the title include both expected TSS and use the workout builder feature.)

Thanks again for your interest in my training plans. I hope your training and racing go very well this season.
