About the Workouts
Every swim, bike and run workout has target heart rate zones to follow. The bulk of workouts are aerobic, which helps build the fat burning endurance physiology needed for great racing in a triathlon. Then of course there are tempo and speed sessions that come at appropriate times throughout your schedule that are anaerobic. These work the high-end physiology and help raise all your fitness markers and capabilities.
In addition, there is a four-phase strength program included in with Racing program. This is key to ensuring you have the overall strength, power, resiliency, and durability needed for great triathlon racing.
All swim workouts come with specific sets you can follow, which enables you to do more than just swim back and forth in the pool. That said, if you are part of a Masters swim squad you are always welcomed to continue on with that.
Bike and Run
Most bike and run workouts come with a description of what to focus on in the session as well as a suggestion on what type of terrain to try to do the workout on. All tempo and speed sessions in these two sports come with very specific intervals to follow that will help you build your speed and sense of pacing needed for racing.
Even though the training zones are set by heart rate, it is highly recommended that you use a device that also tracks and records your power, cadence and speed while cycling and your pace and cadence when running. From there both you and Mark will be able to track pure fitness gains as you progress through your training.
