Summary


Coach Laura’s Keys to Performance:

1. Endurance Training: We must increase our aerobic capacity in order to cover the distance and duration that is necessary for our race goals. Quality will always be emphasized over quantity.

2. Strength Training: Being a durable, resilient, well-rounded athlete is necessary for longevity in triathlon. Strength training is periodized and takes different forms depending on what phase of training we are in, but it is a consistent staple in the training program.

3. Mental Training: Maintaining a process-focused mindset allows for continued progress as athletes and as humans. Results are driven by commitment to and love of the process. We are never done learning, exploring, uncovering, and growing as both humans and athletes. Commit to being open-minded, showing up every day, and not being afraid to fail.

4. Recovery: Progression is a combination of build and recovery. The recovery phase is crucial because that is when your body soaks in the adaptations of training. Training breaks your body down, then recovering builds it back up stronger than before. There are many recovery modalities, but the most important concept is that you commit to resting both your body and mind.


About the Plan:

This program should be used for athletes who are looking to add a strength training component to their in-season swimming, biking, and running plan. The mobility and stability components allow triathletes to get more out of their season by becoming more durable and resilient. It is intended for athletes interested in taking their triathlon training to the next level by becoming stronger and preventing triathlon-related injuries. This plan does not include swim bike run workouts, but is meant to supplement them. Ideally, strength training should be tapered off about 2 weeks before any key race.


Additional Benefits:

Upon purchasing a training plan, you’ll gain access to Coach’s Laura’s athlete resource website, which includes but is not limited to: training terminology, guidance on zones, strength training videos and descriptions, tips for swim, bike, run, and mental training, race planning guidelines, and much more.
