4.0 out of 5 stars Triathlete training dairy 19 Jan 2010
The diary itself is great. A bit complicated for impatient people like me who just want to get on with it without ready the instructions! It's like a paper coach, not as good as a human coach but still a good motivator and advisor. If used correctly it should help me improve this year - my second year in triathlon.
The delivery took over a month which wasn't good. I'm in Ireland and I didn't realize these were coming from the US.
Apart from that all good.
