Triathlon Base Period 8.5-10 hrs/wk

This Triathlon Base Period plan was designed for the athlete who trains about 8.5 to 10 hours per week. It is designed with a R&R week every third week to make sure you are properly adapting and recovering. These R&R weeks include 6 to 7 hours of training. At the end of this plan you will be ready to go to a more advanced Base Period Plan or start a Build-Peak-Race Period Plan for your first A-priority race. Strength training is not included in this plan in order to hold down the weekly volume. But if you decide to add it follow the methodology as described in The Triathlete's Training Bible (Chapter 13). After purchasing this plan you are encouraged to contact if you have a question on your training. A coach will answer.
