Triathlon Training

Friday Fartlek Run: VO2 Max 6x 3min

The ability to run at your top end intensities will enhance your performance. This session works at your VO2 Max intensity, challenging your anaerobic, as well as your aerobic energy systems. This is a perfect session for runners and triathletes running events up to Half Marathon in distance.

Thursday Training Plan: Ironman or Open Water Swim PB

I’ve taken my most popular training plan and given it a make over for 2020. I’ve taken the 12 Weeks to an Ironman Swim PB – Swim Faster with Smarter Training and I’ve modified to to expand the programme from 12 weeks and include an option for more than 3 swims per week.
