The TitanXT beginner, pool, sprint triathlon plan is designed for 1st time triathletes who are targeting a sprint triathlon with a pool swim. It takes a gradual pace to getting you ready for race day. Most weeks consist of 6 workouts: 2 swims, 2 bikes and 2 runs and one rest day. If you are experienced in one discipline then you may want to increase the distance targets for workouts in that discipline.

People who have not been exercising regularly should consult a physician before beginning this plan.

The plan includes a race simulation in week 7 to give you time to think about changes and additions you may need to make to equipment, nutrition and clothing.

This is a distance oriented plan designed to get you to the finish line of a sprint triathlon. Each workout will include a description of how to approach the day's workout, time guidance in addition to distance guidance, but the key is to focus on the distance.

The plan is developed by experienced triathletes who have worked with numerous other triathletes to get them prepared for their first triathlon. The plan is based on well-established training methodologies. The plans adhere to the following principles:

  • Build weekly mileage slowly
  • Build your long efforts slowly
  • Focus on good form
  • Incorporate a variety of paces
  • Periodization (e.g. build for a few weeks and then reduce mileage for a week). Repeat
  • Taper (reduce effort) during the last 2 weeks prior to the race
