Format: Paperback
This is a great little book to help you get to an Ironman finish line, particularly your first Ironman. It lays out simply and succinctly what you need to do, what you need to consider, how to structure your training and provides suggested sessions for you. It gives guidance on how to adjust the proposed schedule according to your life commitments and your performance level and aspirations.
If you're looking for tuition on how to become a self-coach, or if your looking for schedules for any other distance then look elsewhere.
If you're after a handy companion to reference throughout your preparation then this is just the ticket, plus it won't break the bank.

Format: Paperback
Bought this book as my partner has completed 6 x sprint distance tri's and next season wants to do her first Olympic distance tri.

Synopsis suggests this book is ideal, As it turns out it is very specific to doing a full Ironman, (for which I'm sure it is great), but that is a completely different event. Other than a few cusrory mentions of olympic distance, it does not relate to it at all.

Only buy this if you are seriously considering a full Ironman.

Great Training Plan for Those Who Need Daily Motivation 16 May 2009
By J. G. Wachtel - Published on
Format: Paperback
As can be seen in the description, this book assumes its reader is already in very good physical condition as he/she is moving FROM shorter triathlons to a longer "Endurance" or Ironman event. I find it very easy to use the daily training book as a coach pushing down workouts every single day. This leaves no excuse for not getting a solid workout it.
Additionally, the program is properly set up (as would be by 3 very experienced, Olympic-level Ironman athletes/coaches) with Build, IM, Hard, Recovery, Taper and Race Week sections so as to not overtrain and to vary the intensity of the workouts. I think it's great. I'm currently on Week 13 for the second time as I'm doing Louisville this year. Enjoy!

I used this book and LOVED it! I bought the training bible book too (it was way too much info and I wasn't able to make an "action plan" from it). This book told me what to do daily and how hard to do it. I am half way through and really kicking a** at my ironman training. I started my training with no base. Although I'm in shape, I had no specific swimming or biking or running for at least 5 years and this book has me right where i need to be. I follow it religiously and recommend it hihgly!

Good Book, But Misleading Book Description! 12 Mar. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book based on the description that it was for beginner or intermediate triathletes ready to move from sprint distance races to olympic or half-iron distance races. The book actually presents a 24-week training plan for an Ironman distance race. There is a lot of great information in the up-front chapters - descriptions of different types of workouts, etc, but if you are not planning to train for an Ironman, the rest of the book may not be very helpful to you.

Best Triathlon Book I have found! 28 May 2010
By Martin Busher - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book on the net after trawling through the many books on the subject. It's always a problem when choosing a book, if will be as described by the author and fit your needs. This book is very well written and gives direct and clear information on how to train for an Ironman event. My reason for purchasing this book was to get a structure for training and it has delivered. I intend to do the Barcelona Ironman in October the rest is up to me because I believe the book should deliver! Try it yourself.

Good Starting Place 9 Nov. 2006
By Chris C - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be helpful as a reference guide. It is a nice quick version of Endurance training and the 24 week training program is good, as it breaks down the workouts into specific training segments.

I am training for my first Ironman and will use this book in conjunction with others to develop a solid training plan.
