Select group workouts will have “skills portion” in each discipline and a good 15 to 20 minutes (in select group workouts) will be spent on those skills. Our goal is to produce efficient, faster triathletes.
As often as possible, group workouts will take place on terrain that prepares athletes for race day.
Training Program Overview:
*Program Periodization: 3 weeks of build, 1 week recovery. On select blocks in the program, there will be 2 weeks build, 1 week recovery. Assessments every 5 to 6 weeks.
*Schedule: On large volume weeks, there will be two off days to ensure adequate recovery and training adaptation. On average, expect 2 to 3 swims a week, 3 to 4 bike rides a week, 4 to 5 runs a week. On select weeks throughout the program, there will be increases in workout frequency each week in each discipline.
*Training hours will increase in a conservative manner. Training hours will not exceed 18 hours a week. Expect an average of 13 to 15 training hours a week.
*There will be two “Hell Weekends” before race day where over the course of 3 days, athletes will participate in long brick workouts to adequately prepare for the long race day. Athletes love the mental confidence boosters these workouts bring!
*Calendar/Workout Access: Athlete training plans are loaded into Training Peaks. You will receive a personal account and access to the group workout calendar.
*Clinics in each discipline will be offered on a monthly basis during select group workouts. Based on the Tier the athlete registered for, this will either be included in their membership, or paying a discounted drop-in fee of $15.
