This 8-week triathlon plan is intended for the intermediate level youth triathletes ages 10-15. You should be able to train 5 days per week in order to start this plan. This is a detailed 8-week plan, and is designed specifically for youth ages 10-15 years olds who have competed in triathlons in the past and are seeking to improve their performance while preparing to compete in youth triathlons in 8 weeks; younger experienced athletes can use the plan with reduced distances and times.
