Plan Description

This 12-week base plan is designed for the experienced triathlete who trains at 12.5 to 20.5 hours per week. Weekday training hours range from 1.0 to 3.0 per day (1 to 3 workouts per day) and weekend training hours up to 4.5 per day. The training is challenging at this volume and frequency level and to ensure proper recovery and adaptation, there is a recovery period every third week.
