A good training plan,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ironman Start to Finish: 24 Weeks to an Endurance Triathlon (Paperback)
I remember where I was this time last year. Another Olympic distance Tri under my belt and I start thinking...... can I do an Ironman? My tri background was 5-6 Olympic / Sprint Tri's and a marathon over a 2-3 year period.
So I went out and bought a few tri books to get an idea of whether I was "ready", and this one stayed by my bedside until IMUK
This book is perect if you want someone to tell you what to do every day, for six months, to get you to a position where you can conceiveably finish an ironman.
The workouts are really varied and kept training interesting, and the way it builds becomes clear as you get closer to race day. It definitely gave me the confidence heading into race day.
Only you can give yourself the mental strength to keep going when everything is going really (really) badly, be it in a race or training session, but this book is a great way to get yourself that bit closer to Ironman imortality
Go on ..... do it..... pain is temporary.... Ironman is forever!
