I have read some other posts regarding what athletes do in the "off season". I am trying to find a solid routine the combines swim/bike/run but adds in some solid core and weight training. The idea being that it is diverse enough as to not burn me out for the "in season" training.

My goals for the off season are to build strength, tighten core, and maintain endurance. Any plans/programs you have used with success would be appreciated. Planning a 140.6 "A" race next season.

If you have an IM planned for next year I would suggest 10 hours a week ish with 3x s b r add core as needed. You can focus on one sport and drop back the other two if you want like 5x2x2. Then you can build reasonably fast for your IM. BT has some offseason plans. Jeorge has an offseason bike plan.

At there are so many plans that there is no need to ever do the same plans twice in a row or even two or three seasons in a row!

I own both a road bike and a tri bike. I am wondering which bike I should be riding during off season training, or does it matter?

This is the time of year where you focus on your ‘weakest’ event and practice your drills, techniques, form, etc. Here I list some BT training plan options to get you through the off-season.

The off-season is the best time to fine tune your skills and prepare yourself for the next season. It is also time for you to gain some strength and get a little rest after a long season of training.

Maintain a two-day-a-week swimming and running routine. If this happens, my 2005 times should be greatly improved in these areas.
