Triathlon Training Plans and Programs. 10 Week Olympic Distance Training Program for Beginners. The following program is designed for the individual who would like to complete or finish his or her first Olympic distance triathlon with no regard to time.
This also takes into consideration that the individual can run 3 miles, three times per week and cycle a minimum of 8-10 miles (about 60 minutes) regardless of speed. The entire program should be completed at an easy, aerobic pace. If you own a heart rate monitor and are familiar with aerobic heart rate training, than train at the lower end of your aerobic zone. I subscribe to the 180-method of determining your aerobic heart rate zone. This is just one method and certainly not the only one. Training Plans - Search by Type or Author.
