All plans by this Coach


16 Weeks

Plan Description

This 16-week plan (7-to-14 hours per week) is designed to be “bike-specific”, while allowing you to maintain your fitness in the swim and run. This block of training begins with two weeks of preparation work, followed by three weeks of Base I, seven weeks of Base II and four weeks of Base III training. Week-day training does not exceed two hours, and your longest weekend day tops out at 4:25. This training block is not intended for beginning triathletes: you should have several triathlon seasons under your belt prior to attempting this plan.
