This 3-week triathlon program is designed for triathletes who want to maintain some overall conditioning post recovery phase. This program works well as a transition back into structured training. This program will require approximately 8 hours in the first week building to 10 in the third week and can easily be integrated with a Volt strength-training plan (available to B78 Endurance Hub members). If you are brand new to the sport, we recommend completing the 8-week intro to triathlon program first. This 3-week maintenance triathlon program can be found in the B78 Endurance Hub program library. Throughout this program you may find terms that you are not familiar with. If this is the case please refer to the program appendix at the bottom of this program (can also be found in the program library). We wish you the best of luck with your training.
Athletes taking part in this program should consider doing the 8-week introduction to triathlon program.

Other things you should know
All of the distances indicated for the swim workouts are in meters. The workouts have been designed for a 25m pool. All of the bike sessions have been designed for outdoor riding but can easily be duplicated indoors. If you are planning to ride indoors please keep the Main Set the same but scale the warm up and cool down to 60-70% of the written duration. The duration of the swim sessions is an estimate- please use the distances prescribed as your target. The Volt strength-training platform will often prescribe three workouts for the week. You will only do the first two. During the strength sessions choose one of the warm up routines. Please avoid any of the finishers with the exception of the core workouts, which you can add if you please.
