This plan is created as a follow-up to the """"""""Joe Friel 'sTriathlon Base 12 weeks 4-6 hours/week"""""""" plan. This plan follows a 3.5 to 6 hour per week schedule but the workouts are more challenging than in the previous Base period plan. At the end of 12 weeks you will be ready for your Olympic-distance race.
If you did not use the above Base plan you should be able to swim for 30 minutes, bike for 2 hours and run for 90 minutes before starting this plan. If this plan appears to be too easy you may consider buying the Olympic Build-Peak (Intermediate) plan instead. If this plan is too hard then you may buy the Olympic Build-Peak (Beginner) plan.
