Triathlon Coaching Case Studies
Beginner Triathlete, new to Swimming, Riding and Running looking to enter and complete a 70.3 race
Athlete background and experience: no previous swim, bike or run experience.
Training Program: initially based on establishing an achievable training schedule with a strong focus on swim technique to get comfortable swimming and swim continuously.
Process: build the training volume gradually, consistency with the swim, bike and run sessions and planning some shorter races as a first step into Triathlons. A half marathon and some open water swims were incorporated to provide training motivation and confidence in ability, before sitting down and understanding the 70.3 and the race dynamics.
Race result: Finished 2 x Sprint triathlons, a club distance triathlon, then the goal 70.3 event, learning with each step along the journey. Now looking at an Ironman event after establishing a good 70.3 training and racing base.
