This plan is built for athletes with a limited background in triathlon training (0-1 years). Athletes should be reasonably fit and able to run/walk 20 minutes, ride 30-40 minutes, and know how to swim. The plan uses perceived effort (RPE) and HR for effort guidelines. The first 4 weeks are under 5 hours per week training in order to adjust to the regular exercise schedule. The volume builds to a bigges week of 8.5 hours. Recovery weeks/periods are included as is basic strength training.
