Beginner Adaptation, ParkRun Focus - 6 Week Plan
Sean RileyAll plans by this Coach
Seen triathlon on TV? Or maybe you have seen a super fit neighbour whizzing past with the energy of a youth? What ever your motivation this program will encourage you to take the plunge and support you in your journey so you will never look back on the old you.
You need nothing more than an old mountain bike, a pair of old joggers and a pair of goggles. There is no need to invest thousands of dollars to simply test the water and see if this amazing sport is for you.
This program will get you up to speed with the four pillar of fitness (strength, endurance, speed and stamina) while using your local ParkRun to measure gains and maintain a competitive, motivated mindset. Ultimately, this program will lay a foundation to begin your triathlon career.
This program is based on workout time, rather than distance as the distances covered will be dependant on your base fitness level. It begins with a gentle 4 sessions per week, with progression to 6 sessions by the end of the program. It will see you pit your skills against your local ParkRun every fortnight, with the ultimate goal of smashing your ParkRun 5k PB out of the park in week 6 and then propelling you onto a life as a fit and healthy triathlete.
