Summary

A detailed 4 week peak period block designed for sprint or super sprint triathlon training.

This plan is designed to bring you to peak physical race condition following your previous build and base training blocks

There is only 1 dedicated rest day, however, some days have optional workouts, if you are feeling particularly fatigued then omit those workouts and have additional rest days as required.

I have used this specific plan myself in 2015 to get ready for the ITU Age Group World Championships in Chicago.
