■ Peter was swimming five times a week, four pool sessions and one long ocean swim. He also did strength and conditioning training at the gym twice a week.
■ The big weeks were 40-50km in total, but the majority were about 30km.
■ Pool sets were generally either aerobic or heart rate, 1-2km warm up, 3-4km main set then about 1 km warm down.
■ Main sets were any combination of 200s, 400s, 800s, easy then hard, building, progressive overload, 1km time trials, many variations.
■ Most pool sets were 5-7km, some up to 12km. The ocean swims were to hold a steady strong pace, practice feeding, teach yourself to relax and enjoy the swimming. Anything from 3-8 hours.
