    a triathletes week

    I have a question for all you triathletes out there. What is your training week like? How many days do you swim, bike, run? How do you do double days? Thanks

    im 14 and i swim 3 days, bike 2 days, and run 2 days

    Monday-swim
    Tuesday- run
    Wednesday- swim
    thursday - bike
    Friday - swim
    Saturday- run and bike

    I believe double days are just when you train two of the sports in one day

    This is my current theoretical work out for the week. Theoretical because I attend college and work full time. My availability to work out doesn't always happen. I try to give myself a day off between each type of workout to allow recovery (upper vs. lower body). Then, I juggled things around to avoid the busy days in the gym (Mondays are terrible for weight lifting and water aerobics closes the pool).

    Monday
    Easy Run: 45min

    Tuesday
    Power Swim: 100 x 8
    Upper Body Weight Training

    Wednesday BRICK
    Power Cycle: 2min intervals x 30min
    Distance Run: 1.5hr

    Thursday
    Distance Swim: 20min no stop
    Lower Body Weight Training

    Friday
    Upper Body Weight Training

    Saturday TRI
    Swim: 800 yards no stop
    Distance Cycle: 2hr @ ~100 cadence
    Power Run: 5min intervals (fartleg)

    My schedule (usually):

    M,W,F,Sat Bike : with my long bike on saturday, hill on monday, regular pace on wed, and just easy spin on friday.

    T,TH,F,Sun Run : again with long run on weekend. medium run on Thur, and T,F just shorter 20-30 minutes easy pace.

    Swim : my hardest I try to get in 3 days a week. usually on a run day as it leaves me more time.

    I'll also do bricks as we approach the season. running after my bike ride on wednesdays.

    Cooljazz, you must be a perpetual prune with all that swimming! I am impressed.

    Breggurns, I think your schedule will depend a lot on what distance you are training for. I usually try to run 3X, bike 3X, swim 2X, and lift 2X a week, with one day completely off. There are a lot of weeks I dont get all of those workouts done, but at least it gives me a goal to shoot for. I dont beat myself up too much for missing a workout here or there. Also, as you get closer to events, the long rides and runs will become more important, so try not to skip those!
