There are normally seven workouts per week, consisting of 2 swims, 2 cycles, 2 runs and a strength workout. There's a day off each week and taper phase to get you in peak race shape. With just six weeks to go you should already be able to swim 700 metres, ride 45 minutes and run 25 minutes (not all on the same day).

Phil Mosley: "I have 20 years experience of helping age group athletes surpass their goals, while still making sure they have quality time available for family, friends and career. My training plans are intelligently designed around a typical work week. I set proven, time-efficient higher intensity workouts in mid-week, with longer aerobic workouts at the weekends."
