I am almost done with my first training schedule for a 1/8 triathlon and looking for something to do next. However all the schedules I find for a 1/4 triathlon seem to require a higher starting level than I have after finishing the 1/8.
Does anyone have some tips for what to do?
1/8 = Sprint, 1/4 = Olympic. Simple.

WTF is a 1/8 triathlon or even a 1/4?
Sorry maybe it is a metric thing but yes StooDogg is correct
Gradually build up your training from where you are now, until you can start the Olympic distance training, If you have followed a plan then you can add on to it following the same format. Make sure you don't increase your training load too quickly though, around 10% is the general guidelines for how much you should increase your training/ week.
