This 12-week off season plan is designed for the off-season athlete that wants to improve their skills, strength and technique along with keeping a base level of conditioning. The plan will allow the athlete to go into the next season feeling fresh and mentally prepared for their specific triathlon plan. The plan prescribes 2 swims, 2 bikes, 3 runs, 2 strength days, 1 rest day and 1 non-structured day per week. The weekly volume ranges from 7 to 9 hours. This is a Monday to Sunday plan, so the plan should be applied to your Training Peaks account with a Monday start date. Friday is the rest day as this plan is written and the 4th, 8th and 12th week are adaption/drop back weeks. There is benchmark testing for swim, bike and run to track progress.
