While the physical and mental demands of training for a long-distance triathlon can be excruciating, it is, of course, completely eclipsed by the reward of crossing the finish line. Paul Moore and Richard Hoad’s Ultimate Triathlon sets out to take you through the highs and lows with advice on training, nutrition, mental preparation, equipment and how to approach the big day.
As triathletes taking the step from Olympic to long-distance triathlon may have discovered, there’s a big difference in
training for the two different events. The 24-week plan in Ultimate Triathlon is tailored specifically for Iron-distance events, and is accompanied by sections on the finer training details of running, cycling and swimming.
The book is a welcome helping hand for those building up to their first long-distance event and the next best thing to having an Ironman champion on speed dial. An informative tome to accompany you on your journey to Ironman.
