12 Weeks

Plan Description

This 12 week plan is designed for the beginner athlete who wants to complete their first sprint triathlon. This plan does not include speed work but rather focuses on easy and steady efforts building aerobic endurance and fitness. The early part of the plan consists of two swims, two bikes and two runs each week. As the plan progresses a third run is added to incorporate brick workouts. You will need access to a pool with associated gear (swim suit, goggles, swim cap), a bike in good working condition and a good pair of running shoes.
