Plan Description

Get the 80/20 Endurance Advantage!

Featuring the proven 80/20 intensity balance described in Fitzgerald and Warden's bestselling book 80/20 Triathlon, this Triathlon Maintenance training plan will provide you with the same workout structure used by the most successful triathletes in the world. This plan is free of charge for an indefinite period of time. It is our hope that the plan will help you more easily transition from one training plan to another. Use code 8020forU for a 100% discount.

Who is this plan for?

This plan is intended for triathletes of all abilities, who can already comfortably swim for 30 minutes, bike for 60 minutes, and run for 35 minutes. It is designed to bridge the gap until the start of a formal training plan, or to maintain triathlon fitness during an extended race period.

How Do I Measure My Intensity?

This plan presents each workout's intensity target by Power but other intensity type versions of this plan are also available. Each workout can be exported to a supported device, which will automatically guide you through the session with duration, lap, and intensity prompts. See our Structured Workout page for more information.


Do You Have a Guarantee?

Not sure which level is right for you? Review our Level Comparison Charts to find the best fit. Our Intensity Metric Guarantee allows you to switch to a different intensity type for your run (HR, PACE and POWER) and bike workouts (HR and Power) with your purchased level and distance plan.

Does the plan include Strength Training?

This plan is paired with an optional Free or Premium Strength Training plan designed specifically to fit and complement this plan.

80/20 Endurance

80/20 Endurance

80/20 Endurance is the creation of Matt Fitzgerald and David Warden. Based on the breakthrough books 80/20 Running and 80/20 Triathlon, runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes improve the most when they consistently do 80 percent of their training at low intensity and the other 20 percent high intensity. The typical endurance athlete spends only 50-70 percent their total training time at low intensity. The solution? An 80/20 training plan that ensures the optimal intensity balance.
