6 week Triathlon Training Plan for Quarantine (COVID-19)
Peter WilbyAll plans by this Coach
This plan is designed for triathletes currently in quarantine due to COVID-19
The aim of this plan:
To maintain and improve all body triathlon specific specific strength with a dry land focus on swim replacements whilst the pools are not open. Maintain base aerobic fitness using cycling and running but lessening TSS to help protect the immune system during these hard times. Good for sprint distance through to long distance triathletes.
Who this is for:
Triathletes who need their one allowed exercise session per day to be structured alongside training at home to best maintain fitness.
What you need:
This plan includes swim cord training however, it is not essential. All exercises and drills are accompanied with instructional video. There is no other equipment needed. You also are given access to the inner circle at (https://www.petewilbytriathlon.co.uk/forum) which is a closed forum for training plan athletes to communicate whilst following a plan.
What to expect:
The longer steady sessions are set using duration, however this could be reduced to suit your needs. I recommend doing no more than two hours in zone 2 for long steady sessions during these times.
There is a strength based work out on six out of seven days, three bike rides per week and two runs per week. High intensity training is included. One days is kept clear to do other things.
