Reply To: Orientation and Triathlon 101 Follow-Up Questions

Hi – this might be a silly question (I missed the orientation meeting for a work trip).  The handout about the training plan says that the strength training is not included on the schedule, however, the first phase of the workout plan for the Olympic distances does list strength training about twice a week.  I’m assuming that this is the strength training I should be doing (and using the pdfs of the lunges/planks/etc.), and not that I should be adding in a few more lifting sessions a week?
