This is a guide to training for and competing in long-distance/Ironman triathlons, one of the world's toughest sporting events. Comprising of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile cycle and a marathon, Ironman-distance triathlon is a daunting undertaking for every competitor; for the first-timer, it can be overwhelming. Yet, the numbers of participants are rocketing as thousands of people who have completed a sprint- or standard-distance triathlon are looking for their next challenge. This book takes a holistic approach to the sport. It covers everything from training plans to race entry, from preparing your equipment to nutrition. It is not guaranteed to get you over the finish line, but it will help ensure that you are as prepared as you can be when the gun goes off. The content is aimed at levels of ability ranging from first timers to the more experienced, and includes information for triathletes from a variety of age groups. Accessible, lively and authoritative, this book is the ideal guide to training for one of the most difficult sporting challenges in the world.show more
