Here's your training plan - get race ready by August

Throughout the 2011 Fit Nation Triathlon Challenge, we will be posting workout and meal plans so you can follow along at home.  Today's posting is the first four weeks of training.

The 6-pack are well into training for the New York City Triathlon. In just one month’s time we’ve seen their health improve and their fitness levels increase…dramatically! They are going longer with their workouts as they build their base, and soon they will head into going stronger! Are you ready to join them? Are you ready to get in shape for triathlon racing this summer? Let’s get started!

We'll post four weeks of workouts at a time. Follow the steps and then get it done…no excuses!

Step 1 – Go sign up for a sprint distance race sometime in June, then an Olympic distance race sometime in August. The program above will prepare you for these distances.

Step 2 – Enlist some friends and family to join you in the training (and perhaps racing). It’s more fun with a crowd.

Step 3 – Put the workouts below in your calendar and stick to them!!

Laura Cozik, athletic director for the CNN Triathlon Challenge, is the founder and CEO of Team Lipstick, LLC, an all female triathlon team, based in New York City with a chapter in Washington, D C.

    The training plan (found via a link at the top of the article) appears a bit "off" (on the aggressive side). For example, if your first triathlon is a sprint, there is no need to swim/drills for an hour.... a sprint swim is only (typically) 800 meters. If your long swim is 20-25 min you will be fine on race day. Also, the plan's run schedule appears out of order. An hour's worth of running/drills early in the week but a "Long Run" of 20-minutes on the weekend? You could walk the 5K in less than 50-min. Your long run should be 30 to 35 minutes, with any run drill (earlier in the week) done in less than 20-minutes. In short, your first triathlon should be about reaching the starting line mentally and physically prepared without injury.....DO NOT OVERTRAIN! This will maximize the chance that you will have fun during the race and finish with a smile on your face.
