Joe Friel and Gordo Byrn return with an updated edition of their very successful training manual. While cynics may suggest a second version is a money-spinning venture, with six years between the editions they’ve had plenty of time to review and challenge the methodology in the previous book.
For those without the first edition, the book contains large amounts of logically ordered, comfortably progressive and easily readable training, injury and triathlon lifestyle advice. While a large amount of the content is the same as the first book, it does have an additional section on wellness and recovery, and tips directed at novice, intermediate and elite athletes – something rarely seen in similar titles.
There are no set programmes to follow; rather case studies of athletes of all abilities. This, together with the rest of the info, will help you put together your ideal training plan before
your big long-distance race.
