I started cycling a few years ago and am newish to structured training (started using TR last fall 2019).
I have a high interest in focusing on triathlon and earlier this year set my sights on a sprint distance that would have happened this month but… COVID.
In mid March I was uncertain of what would happen and was discouraged after falling off training in Jan/Feb, so I just restarted with SSB. I’ve since finished SSB LV1 & 2 and trying to decide what to do next.
I thought I’d start my triathlon journey focused on a sprint distance, but with the likelihood being that my first real triathlon will be a year from now I’m considering setting my sights on Olympic distance spring 2021. For the past 8 weeks I’ve also been upping my running and doing some swim strength. Our local pools are going to likely be closed until late summer at the earliest.
So, do I pick a triathlon specific Build plan, or maybe just go with Sustained Power build plan if I’m uncertain of which distance I want to try first. Or perhaps putting an A race on the calendar and using plan builder? I just don’t know where to place that fake A race.
I’m currently only 2.9 watts/kg so lots of room to improve.
Any and all feedback is welcome!
