Training Topic: 20/40 Week Half-Triathlon and Full-Triathlon Training Plan

Submitted by Member: Craig Petrus

Date: May 3rd, 2015

As a "rookie triathlete," I spent a lot of time on the internet researching triathlon training plans to try and find one that would be good for my lifestyle (mainly work schedule) and level of competitiveness. The link to the training plan below is one that I found that I feel best fits me. While it is designed as "beginner" plan along with it being a twenty-week training plan, I doubled it to a forty-week training plan in order to train for both a half-triathlon and a full-triathlon. Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Training Topic: Podcasts for Triathletes

Ever since getting into my new hobby called “triathlon” (Ha!), I wanted to learn as much information as I could that would help me become a better athlete at all stages of the sport. One outlet that I have turned to is triathlon focused podcasts. Podcasts can provide a wealth of information regarding race day planning, advice on season planning, training tips, interviews with world class triathletes, and overall triathlete nutrition and health and wellness to name a few topics. While I have uncovered some podcasts that are better than others and I take in consideration the authors while considering their content and advice, below is a list of a few that I listen to often (and during those long runs and rides…which can be a great distraction from the pain). Should you have other podcasts that you can recommend that are not on this list, please email them to me at petruscwp@gmail.com and I will make sure to add them to the list. Hope this helps! Happy training!
