Triathlon Training program, 26.3. – 1.4.2012

For the English speaking fellows of our triathlon team, i am writing our training program in English, translating from my Greek speaking site christostriathlon.

Racing season begins today. We will make 2 training cycles of 4 weeks each, aiming optimal performance at  the games on 22.4.2012 and 20.5.2012. I will not write a detailed plan at swimming, as most swim clubs organized them.for our team.  In key workouts I write location and time to gather more people as possible. Basic rule a) the sessions start exactly on time and b) Everybody welcome, but if friends in cycling is very slow at some point be separated.
