Required reading for budding ironmen (and women), 30 Oct. 2005
If you're thinking of doing an ironman this is an invaluable guide. It guides you through every aspect of planning, training and finishing your first (and subsequent!) ironman race. The sample training plans are very useful in giving you an idea of the volume and type of training you need to do. Importantly stresses the pointlessness/danger of doing too much running. The author also offers a "contact me" facility. I thought "yeah right", but tried it and got a prompt and useful response. Probably the best piece of kit you'll buy.
