Sprint Distance Triathlon Training Program - Intermediate Level - 20 week Saturday Race


Mark Terry

All plans by this Coach


20 Weeks

Plan Description

PURPOSE: This is an intermediate level Sprint Distance training plan intended for use by an age group triathlete. Training time ranges from 4 hours up to 6.5 hours of weekly training.

Purchase of this plan includes:
✔ Triathlon Training Manual
✔ email access to a USAT certified coach

The goal is to gradually build fitness while building confidence. Every workout has a purpose labeled by the training zone (i.e Bike Z3). These can be accomplished by using RPE, Heart rate, and/or power meter for bike. Training zones are established via metabolic testing, calculations based on age, and/or Benchmark testing (included in the plan).

With the busy age group athlete in mind, weekday workouts have light volume of 1 to 1.5 hours, which can be split between morning, afternoon, or evenings. Weekends include the long ride and run. I am happy to make modifications to workout days as requested.

By the end of the 20 week training cycle, you will have a high level of fitness required to successfully complete a Sprint distance event (750 meter swim, 20 K bike, and 5 K run).

I want to wish you luck with your training and racing this season and thank you for using this training plan.
