All plans and guides are delivered as PDF files.

NEW TRIATHLETES WHO:

  • Started training for triathlon in the past year or have just come back to the sport.
  • Have been training a few times a week, but haven’t seen enough progress
  • Want to race, but need direction on how to put all the pieces together to develop into a proper Triathlete.
  • Don’t have that much time to train – family, work and other priorities mean you can’t spend as much time training as you’d like.

THE STRUCTURE

  • Weeks 1-3: Fitness testing and two weeks of intensity.
  • Week 4: Recovery week to absorb work of previous three weeks.
  • Weeks 5, 6: Big build in both intensity and volume to give your system a push.
  • Week 7: Recovery week to absorb work of previous two weeks.
  • Weeks 8-10: Final push to boost your top-end fitness and freshen up before inflicting your hard-earned strength on others.

TIME PER WEEK

  • An average of 6 hours per week, with volume ranging between 4.5 and 7 hours a week.
  • You’ll have an average of five workout days a week.
  • Is Mt. Sufferlandria erupting and the ash cloud is forcing you to ride indoors. That's OK, you can do each workout on your trainer. Simply reduce the duration by 25% but increase the RPE by 1. (Not sure what RPE means? It's all explained in detail in the plans.)
