Triathlon Workout: Cycle 2 (Olympic Distance) - Week 3, Day 2
Completing a triathlon takes strength, speed, endurance, and flexibility. Triathlon training is balanced, whole-body training. In other sports you may wind up building strength in some areas, while accruing weaknesses in others. Triathletes get body benefits from running, cycling, and swimming, and as a result are lean and fit from head to toe.
After the sprint-distance triathlon, many athletes have their sights set on an Olympic distance event. If that's your goal, then this comprehensive program is for you.
Week 3, Day 2

- 10-20 seconds at 90% effort
- 1 minute recovery
Increase the effort on each 10-20 second effort. Then the fun begins: pedal as hard as you can for 20 seconds, then recover for 10 seconds (no more, no
less). Do this up to 8 times. Good luck!
