This plan is targeted at a novice triathlete, aiming to complete a 'Sprint' distance triathlon possibly for the first time. It assumes good general health and fitness background with some experience of swim, bike and run. Training plan volume is between 3 and 6 hours per week. The weekly schedule typically includes 2 swim sessions, 2 bike sessions and 2 run sessions. One or two ‘strength’ / conditioning sessions each week are recommended in addition to the swim, bike and run sessions detailed.
“Safe to say I nailed it… Entirely down to following the training you set out. I can’t thank you enough, I would never have reached my best without your help.”
“Thanks Steve. I have really enjoyed the training sessions so far and I am confident this plan will help me achieve my goals.” (Todd Ohlmeyer)
