The two things that popped out immediately was the targeted heart rate training and the tempo training. I will dig up an old spreadsheet from triathlon training just to confirm. Each week I would have a focus sport. That sport would get three workouts that week. I would do one longer slower targeted heart rate day, one tempo day and one brick where I would work just under race pace (usually 5 to 10 BPM less) in conjunction with my other sports (a brick would be a swim then bike or bike then run workout). This was my off season style training and as I approached the season I started doing a lot more intervals and more work at a higher HR.
