Pro triathlete & pro cyclist Cam Wurf has an unorthodox approach to his Ironman training that is overseen by his coach Tim Kerrison of Team Ineos. While it is hard to create an accurate template of Cam’s weekly training due to travel and racing, this is as close to a template that started to form for the thirteen weeks leading into the 2019 Ironman World Championships.
All cam’s training data is uploaded to Strava and I will aim to dig deeper into a few of his key weeks.
Training leading into Kona
Monday: – AM: Morning ride 70-80km – PM: Run 11-16km (often this run is a hypoxic run)
Tuesday: – Double run day, often one being a track session 15+18km and the 2nd run 5-10km PM: swim session 3-5km
Wednesday: – Bike 4-5hrs + swim 3-4km
Thursday: – Long run (30-40km) the afternoon on a Thursday can be a mix bag, some weeks it will be a double run day, others a 5km swim and others a swim/bike/run
Friday: Swim 3-5km followed by a ride 3-5hrs
Saturday: Swim 5km, Mid morning ride 3-5hrs with a 20km brick run
Sunday: rest day
A lot of Cam’s runs including his long runs are done at or around race pace.
