Plan Description

This plan assumes you have some level of activity, but have not been training. It assumes you can swim the length of the pool, bike for 5-10 miles and jog a little.

It is set up for a beginner triathlon which would have a pool swim of a 250-500 meter or yards length, a 10-15 mile bike and a 5 k run.

Your weekly training will get up to around 3 hours for the week.

I can be available for questions via email. If you don't understand a drill or part of the plan.

I am a Level 1 USAT triathlon coach and have been competing in triathlon for 17 years, racing triathlons from sprints to the 1/2 ironman, and even competed successfully at the World Championship level. I have coached a variety of athletes including beginners who couldn't swim 25 yards and others with no bike experience. I promise, I will get you successfully to the starting line and help you complete your first triathlon, and for the more experienced athlete, I'll help you get faster and fitter.
