When you cross the finish line of your triathlon, you will have swum, biked, and run faster than you have in previous events.
Designed for busy triathletes targetting an Olympic distance race, the primary goal of this training plan is to prepare you to Swim, Bike, and Run faster during YOUR event.
Crafted by myself, Ray Boardman PGDipSportsMed, PGDipRehab, PGCertSc (Exercise Science), BSc (Anatomy), DipSportsStudies this plan encapsulates my passion for the sport, my experience from completing dozens of triathlons including Half and Full IRON-distance finishes and my success coaching hundreds of triathletes.
Starting 12 weeks before the YOUR event, this plan progresses through phases to build you to peak performance. Each week contains three swims. You will build up to 2,900 metres swimming in a single session so you can get the sessions done quickly. Cycling-wise you’ll build through to a single 4-hour session in the weekend and a long run mid-week of an hour and a half. I recommend using a swimming monitor (eg. Garmin Forerunner 735, 920, or 935) to track your sessions in the pool, as well as cycling with power and running utilising pace.
Prior to using this plan, you should be able to:
- Complete a swim of 800 meters or yards continuously, and 2,000 metres or yards total within a workout;
- Ride for 2 hours comfortably; and
- Run 10km or 60 minutes continuously.
Purchase of this plan gives you access to my fortnightly coaching calls where you can ask me any training or racing-related questions.
Training for another race distance? I also have training plans for IRON-distance Triathlons (3.8km Swim/180km Bike/42km Run) and Sprint & Olympic Triathlons plus Running Races (from 5k to marathon), too.
