What can you expect from our TRIplans?
Tri Training Harder’s TRIplans are 12 weeks (Sprint), 20 weeks (Olympic/Standard), 24 weeks (Middle) and 32 weeks (Long Course/Ironman). Each plan is tailored for the race distance with the appropriate amount of technical, base, endurance, speed and race-preparation work dependant on how close your event is.
Designed for variations in ability within swim, bike and run.
What makes our TRIplans stand apart from other generic 'one size fits all' plans is that we take into consideration that you might be stronger in certain disciplines than others, for example you may be an exceptional level runner and a poor swimmer. In this case the schedule would include beginner-level swim sessions alongside run sessions designed for a very well conditioned athlete.
Designed for variations in your weekly time available to swim, bike and run.
Not only can you stipulate your ability level in each discipline, you can also choose how many sessions per week of that discipline you have the time for during a week.
For instance, if you could only get to a pool twice a week yet had time for 5 bike sessions and 3 run sessions, this would also be accounted for in the plan you download!
Designed to change over time.
We are expecting you to improve your ability with time. We are also ready for the fact that your weekly work/family schedule may change. Not a problem. You only have to download one phase at a time, which means that at the end of each phase you can re-assess your situation and make adjustments in your next download if necessary.
All of our TRIplans follow the same pricing structure and work out at only £1 per discipline, per week!
Pricing is done in US Dollars due to billing being done through TrainingPeaks software, which charges in US Dollars
