Base - Olympic Tri MV
6 weeks duration
Last updated on Monday, November 26, 2018
The mid-volume version of the Olympic Triathlon Base plan has triathletes swimming three times each week for up to 6000m, on the bike three times each week for about 3.5 hours total (including a few brick workouts), and running up to 3 hours each week.
This happy-medium plan is aimed at reasonably experienced Olympic-distance triathletes, or even very experienced sprint distance triathletes, ready to move up to the international distance. This plan is designed to help athletes develop a firm base of fitness in all 3 disciplines, in preparation for potential top-10 age group placings, on no more than 8 hours per week.
Note: Double-day workouts can be done in any order and separated by as little or as much time as you choose, as long as you can keep the quality of both workouts high.
