To cut a long story short, I am coming back from some surgical procedures to hopefully prevent a return of atrial fibrillation. I am 52 and previously for the past 2 years have been training 10-12 hours a week via coach and was starting to see some decent improvements in my triathlons after only starting 3 years ago!
After discussions with my cardioligist we’ve agreed that max HR stuff like Time Trialling probably isn’t ideal, so I’ve sold my “race” bike.
However I want to keep fit, ride my bike, run, swim, be able to swim outdoors, and maybe do the odd park run, sprint tri etc.
With that in mind, and the fact I really like “structured” training and the calendar to keep my focused and honest, the question is.
Would a low volume tri plan be a good all round multi sport fitness programme? I would supplement it with some weight training. I’m thinking it would be a good mix of running for bone density, cycling and then swimming for some less impactful exercise, and all without having to join a gym and goto circuit training!
If not, what would you suggest?
