What is the difference between the beginner/ intermediate and advanced plans?
This is for someone who has just started training for triathlons. However, we expect you to have a background in some kind of sport, be it running, cycling or swimming or even football etc. A beginner wanting to complete a sprint triathlon should be able to swim (this will not teach you to swim) at least 100m in front crawl or breastroke. You don’t have to be able to swim frontcrawl to complete your first triathlon, but you may want to when you do you next one!
To do this plan, you should be able to: swim 100m, cycle 5miles and walk/ run at least 2km
I will be building you up through the course of the 12 weeks, from 4 sessions per week to 6 (this will be 2hours to 5hours per week)
This is for someone who has completed a triathlon or a few before. They perhaps are after a bit of structure to their training in order to know how to organise their week and also improve their performance generally.
You should be able to swim 400m, bike 25km, run 5km– the aim of this plan is to improve the way in which you train so you can feel the benefits and improve your performance.
I will be building you up through the course of the 12 weeks, from 6 sessions per week to 8 (this will be 5 hours to 8 hours per week)
This is for someone who has had a few years competing at triathlon and their main focus is to improve their performance. You may want to place higher in your age category, compete rather than complete! Improve speed, efficiency and endurance. You may want to train smarter and get the most out of your workouts
You should be able to swim 400m, bike 25km-40km and run 5km-10km easily
I will be building you up through the course of the 12 weeks, from 8 sessions per week to 12 (this will be 8hours to 12hours per week)
