Location: Herne Hill (Venue tbc once numbers confirmed)

Cost: event free, £20 for training plan

Time and date: Monday 17th July, 8.30pm

More on the training plan

For just £20 you’ll get a training programme that will include 7 training sessions, and a rest day per week, with options to swap the sessions for club training sessions where you want.


How’s a training plan going to help me?

- The training plan give you structure to try and ensure you have the right dose of training and recovery to maximise your performance.

- The plan will include tests in each discipline, from which you can set training zones. This ensures that each training session can be structured to ensure you are getting the right physiological changes in your body to help you go faster on race day.

- It will also give you the chance to try out a training plan at a very competitive price, to decide whether you then want to invest in a more bespoke training plan in the future.

What will I need to in order to follow the training plan?

The bare minimum is the normal kit you’ll need to do a triathlon (bike, shoes etc).

If you have a multisport watch then you’ll be able to follow the training zones more closely. But the plan will always give you the option to use RPE – rating of perceived exertion i.e. how hard it feels instead.

If you have a power meter, smart turbo trainer or access to gym with a fixed bike with power (e.g. A Wattbike or the Matrix bikes we use in spin), and/or a heartrate monitor, then that will give you other options for following the training zones as well.

I like training with other people rather than by myself, is this going to work for me?

If you only ever want to go to club sessions then this might not be the best option for you. But if you want to go to club sessions, but often can’t make it, then this means you wont miss out on your training. And as everyone will be doing the same training sessions in the same week you can post on the forum to see if others want to meet to do the session  (although remember the idea if that you stick to your training zones).

I’m not doing Sussex, can I still buy a plan?

Yes of course! The plan will be suitable for anyone doing an Olympic race who has 10 weeks to train.

*I can’t make the event, can I still buy the plan?

Yup, there will also be an option to buy online
