Triathlon Tip #28 – Building Mileage

Triathlon Tip #28 – Building Mileage
September 29, 2017 Nick Seitz

Building Mileage

As you start building mileage, the bulk of this additional mileage should come in the form of a weekly long ride that builds for 2-3 weeks and then backs off every 3rd or 4th week for recovery. Start your training early enough so you can build slowly with a maximum increase in weekly mileage of about 10% every week. Plan this out from now to the race to make sure your progression will work.
