The above program at first glance may seem too hard for most people, because you are training 6 days a week. This is the good thing about triathlon training, because you are training for three different sports, you are allowing your body muscles to recover. If time is a problem, look at cycling or running to work, or adjusting the session to fit into your lunch break, any employer should be keen to allow its staff a little extra bit of time to appreciate the benefits of exercise.

Remember there is a first discipline in triathlon, that is your own self belief, if you think you can do it, you will. Aim to overcome all the negatives in your life complete your first triathlon and experience the positive feelings of your own achievement.
