This is a 12 week Olympic Distance Plan aimed for beginners or novice triathletes. The plan incorporates two swims, two bikes and at least three runs each week. The long ride begins at one hour and builds to two hours. The long run starts at 45 minutes and builds to 90 minutes. The overwhelming majority of the training is performed at an easy pace with a few workouts designed around tempo efforts. The plan utilizes an off day each and every Monday so that the athlete may recover and prepare for the week ahead.
