Commit. Train. Perspire. Believe. Achieve.
When you cross the finish line of your Sprint triathlon, you've accomplished something very special.
Designed for EXPERIENCED triathletes who have completed muiltiple sprint and/or international distance triathlons, the primary goal of this 14-week training plan is to prepare you to EXCEL in YOUR Sprint Triathlon on race day
Crafted by USA Triathlon-certified coach and former pro triathlete David Glover, MSE, MS, CSCS, this plan encapsulates his passion for the sport, his experience from completing 100+ triathlons and his success in coaching hundreds of triathletes.
Starting 14 weeks before your goal race, this plan progresses through one base period and two build periods (8.5 hours in biggest training week) prior to peaking and tapering the last two weeks. Following the base period, each week typically contains 3x swims, 3x bikes and 3x runs plus 1 BRICK run. You will build up to: 3,000 yards (or meters) swimming, 1.5 hrs biking and 50 minutes running. Your long ride is Saturday, long run is Sunday and off day is Monday. Although not necessary, we recommend using a heart rate monitor in conjunction with perceived effort; you may also use a GPS-device for running or power meter for cycling, too.
Prior to using this plan, you should be able to complete the following workouts:
- Swim: 300 meters or yards continuously
- Bike: 60 min
- Run: 30 min
