Up to 15-20 hours a week for an ironman if you want to be at the sharp end, a lot but not as much as it sounds, 6-7 of those will be a long ride+run and then 3 or so on a run the following day at a weekend. A 50-60 mile week training for a marathon might be what? 8-10 hours or so depending on your pace? Make your long bike ride a ride to a cafe, bite to eat with the family and back home and everyone wins. The cafe is S Derbys does very nice orange cake.
