Summary

This training plan is designed for a triathlete coming back from a break in training. The main goal of the plan is to re-adapt the athlete to regularly scheduled workouts, getting the athlete into a routine, and starting to build some base for training blocks to come. The effort level for most of this plan should be easy to moderate, with only a couple of short, high intensity moments throughout the 4 weeks.
