Summary

Are you thinking about getting into triathlon or doing your first race? Have you finished a couple of races and are keen to improve your performance?
Triathlon training and racing can be daunting and confusing. Many beginners are a little intimidated by everybody else who looks like they know what they are doing and have all the gear.
Triathlon for Beginners is an easy-to-understand and insightful book packed with practical training tips and strategies, nutrition advice, how to develop mental toughness, and advice on triathlon gear you need. It will help you:



Understand the sport of triathlon and how it works
Develop a training plan that simplifies your season
Train effectively, so you minimize the risk of getting injured
Avoid making mistakes that cost a lot of time and money
Help you feel confident when you are on the start line
Decide what race length is best for you, from sprint to Ironman
Buy the right triathlon kit to suit your ability and your aspirations

A personal note from the author: This book is gathered from years of training and racing, not only from my triathlon experience but from the experiences of champions. I have trained with and raced with elite athletes and winners from all over the world, but I also started out not knowing what I was doing and was scared to death when I did my first race.
I wish I had this book when I started out. I would have saved myself a lot of heartache and stress! I wrote this to help all triathlon rookies get over their nerves and enjoy this fantastic sport.
Triathlon for Beginners is a complete start-to-finish guide that covers all areas of training and racing, including what you need to know and how to begin; how to understand the jargon of the sport; training rules and techniques; swimming, cycling, and running techniques; race etiquette; and how to get faster and better performances.

Great first book

This is a great first book. If you already do triathlons you will struggle wanting to get through the first few chapters. Although basic in general, he does a good job with the book and worth listening to on a long bike ride
