Hi all. I’ve had a look at the 220 training plans on 220 which are great - if you understand the shorthand! There doesn’t appear to be a key for many of them so I’m lost.  


What at would be a good solid straight forward book to buy which will explain things and the abbreviations please? I’m currently looking at buying my first road bike, having swim coaching and have just completed my first half. I’m aiming for my first 70.3 next year .


any recommendations would be ace.

Re: "understanding the shorthand" ... yes it sometimes happens you can get to the training plans without being able to find the articles that go with them - these articles are essential.

Here's how you can get to at least one page on that explains what "Multi-Brick" is.  I believe this page is what's referred to by "see previous section" in the middle distance training plan.
