This schedule is designed for a mid to end season race for an intermediate level triathlete who has three to four racing seasons under their belt. The athlete will have completed a base training period at the start of the year and will have raced at least once prior to starting this schedule. This schedule is race-proven by age group athletes. Athletes following this schedule have achieved more than a dozen AG podiums, including 5 wins. The schedule is written by Erik Seedhouse, an ex-professional triathlete and 3 times World Champion in the ultraendurance arena. He combines his racing experience with his coaching background and his expertise in the fields of sports science and exercise physiology.
