This 8-week program is designed for beginner, long distance, triathletes who want a swim specific program leading into a 70.3 or full Ironman event. This program will require approx. 4 hours per week and can easily be integrated with a Volt strength-training plan (available to B78 Endurance Hub members) and any other bike/run programs from the B78 Endurance Hub library or elsewhere. There will be 6 swim workouts per week of 30-75mins each. Throughout this program you may find terms that you are not familiar with. If this is the case please refer to the ‘Swim Lingo’ document available at the B78 Endurance Hub programs section. We wish you the best of luck with your training.
Athletes taking part in this program should consider doing the 3-week maintenance/off season program before starting or any of our beginner programs.
