Standard Distance Aquabike

Hello all, longtime user/lurker here with a question about Aquabike. To those who are unfamiliar, the Standard distance Aquabike is a Multisport consisting of 1500 meter swim followed by a 40K time trial. A lot of folks like to refer to it as DNFing a triathlon but for people like myself I train it as a sport unto itself.

My question to the forums gurus: Would you use the TT training plan or the Olympic Triathlon plan for training the bike? I use a separate swimming coach, so I will manually load those.

Thank you very much!


With no run to save your legs for it seems pretty reasonable to just try the 40k TT plan. You’ll also be able to push a higher volume plan that you otherwise would if you were having to deal with run training too. :grinning:
