I am excited to present to you Team Sirius’s
16 weeks Advanced Olympic Distance plan to prepare you for your key Olympic Distance race.

This plan is perfectly suited for the advanced grouper who is not as time limited, eager
to complete their key race at peak fitness!

Starting this plan you should be at a very good fitness level before you begin. This means, able to swim 3000m, bike 90 mins and run 1 hour easily.

This plan build up to 20 hours.The plan includes 2 sessions per day on most weekdays and weekends.
The plan covers all the bases, and leaves no stone unturned.
I am also certain that it will keep you motivated, inspired and continually progressing!

Should you have other races during this 16 week block, you can purchase the 10day Taper plan from Training Peaks that I have on sale. This plan would be inserted into the 10 days leading into your race..and the days after the race. This allows for you to be able to train for your "A" race but race successfully in all other races you hope to compete in, throughout the season.

If you are the serious Olympic distance age grouper wanting to podium your races with good time availabilty to train twice a day this plan is for you!!!

For an additional price you can purchase one on one email sessions, or Skype calls with myself or
my assistant coach, Rebekah Keat.

The cost for this would be:

250.00/hr for myself.
100.00/hr for Rebekah Keat

I hope that you take on this awesome plan.
It will be awesome to welcome you to Team Sirius, and be a part of your quest for excellence!!!
