I think you'll be fine. Most plans are written with the notion that no one sticks to them exactly anyway. So I think they have a bit of wiggle room in them for things like...a backpacking trip! Enjoy t=your trip, you'll still be keeping fit, and you'll come back to your training well rested.

I think that depends on where you are at in the training plan and your recent fitness history. Some maintain a very high level of fitness year round while others take a significant rest between events.

It also depends on your goal for this tri (personal best, specific time, place in age group or entire even...)

If you have been training hard and are confident with all 3 events - this "break" in training might actually help.

I need all the swim time I can get so I would have to find a way to continue my swim training during the "break".

Good luck and have a great time on your backpacking trip (I would love to be able to get away from work long enough for a 5 day back pack trip)!

I'm currently training for my first sprint, and I'm a stickler about my workouts. Right in the middle of my training schedule I'm going backpacking for 5 days. Will this drastically effect my training?
