3.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction for a first timer 22 Mar 2005
By Douglas W. Storey - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good and understandable introduction to triathlon and nothing more. The workouts got me through my first one with a pretty respectible time but if you are looking for more info, other books such as Triathlon 101 are a better bet. In defense of this book, I don't believe it was written to be more than an introduction to the sport. Good workouts in the back.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basics - for your first tri 9 Sep 2004
By Laura Tucker - Published on
If you are training for your first triathlon, and/or you think you might only do one triathlon and don't want to invest too much money, this book might do it for you. It has basics on everything from work-out schedules to weight training to nutrition. It was okay for what I wanted at the time and the price, but I wish I would of invested a book that will help me more in the future. It was an easy read, I read most of it on my lunch hour one day. It was a comfort to have and help me visualize what the race would be like.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT an Ironman training guide 17 Oct 2010
By Travis C - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because It looked like a book that was designed for the first time Ironman runner. The title "Starting Out Triathlon: Training for Your First Competition (Ironman Edition)" is very misleading. It appears to be a good trainig book for other triathlon distances like a sprint or Olympic, but it does not touch on the Ironman distance at all.

I am returning it.
