Despite what you might have heard, triathlon running is not like typical running. The triathlon run comes after a swim and a bike, making training, pacing, and technique requirements very different from regular running. But this isn't what triathletes have been told! Fortunately, with the right kind of run training, the triathlon run doesn't have to be a long, painful slog with a stumble to the finish. "Triathlon Running Foundations" provides the specific information athletes need in order to feel strong for every step of the run, all the way to the finish. For anyone who has ever said they dread the run, can't seem to improve, get injured, or feel like they're "just not built to run," this book will be the solution! "Triathlon Taren" Gesell is a triathlete who has become known for his wildly popular YouTube channel, Instagram account, and podcast, where he shares tips, tricks, hacks, the latest scientific findings and time-tested knowledge to help age-groupers get to their start lines confident and their finish lines strong.

From Triathlete magazine - the most popular and extensivesource for triathlon information - comes this guidebook of weeklytraining plans for triathletes of all skill levels.
A breakthrough program for triathletes -- beginner, intermediate, and advanced -- showing how to balance training intensity to maximize performance -- from a fitness expert and elite coach. Cutting-edge research has proven that triathletes and other endurance athletes experience their greatest performance when they do 80 percent of their training at low intensity and the remaining 20 percent at moderate to high intensity. But the vast majority of recreational triathletes are caught in the so-called "moderate-intensity rut," spending almost half of their time training too hard--harder than the pros. Training harder isn't smarter; it actually results in low-grade chronic fatigue that prevents recreational athletes from getting the best results. In 80/20 Triathlon, Matt Fitzgerald and David Warden lay out the real-world and scientific evidence, offering concrete tips and strategies, along with complete training plans for every distance--Sprint, Olympic, Half-Ironman, and Ironman--to help athletes implement the 80/20 rule of intensity balance. Benefits include reduced fatigue and injury risk, improved fitness, increased motivation, and better race results.

In The Well-Built Triathlete, elite triathlon coach Matt Dixon reveals the approach he has used to turn age-group triathletes into elite professionals and champions. Dixon's method breaks new ground in triathlon training, introducing a new, comprehensive approach that builds the whole athlete for stronger performance. Dixon details the four pillars of performance that form the foundation of his highly successful purplepatch fitness program, showing triathletes of all abilities how they can become well-built triathletes and perform better year after year. The Well-Built Triathlete does not focus narrowly on workouts and training, but instead gives equal weight to training and workouts, recovery and rest, workout and daily nutrition, and functional strength and mobility. Dixon considers the demands of career and family to prepare athletes to achieve their goals through a realistic, practical ecosystem of stress and recovery. The Well-Built Triathlete is Dixon's guide to every aspect of triathlon performance. Chapters on swimming, cycling, and running explain the most effective ways to train for each. His pragmatic approach to stretching, recovery, and effective strength training shows athletes where they can recover valuable time. A purplepatch section shows how triathletes can achieve long streaks of high performance. Dixon's whole-athlete approach to triathlon will help triathletes become greater than the sum of their workouts. By becoming better all-around athletes, well-built triathletes will train and race faster than ever.
From basic tenets of training to nutrition guidelines,this is the first resource for runners to fully integrate nutrition with training for a complete and systematic pre-race plan. "A must for marathoners"(Library Journal). Every year, roughly 2 million people participate in marathons and half marathons in the United States, and, no matter what level they are, every one of these runners has likely hit "The Wall," running out of muscle fuel in the final miles and slowing down precipitously. This setback and other common running disappointments are nutritional (or metabolic) in nature. In The New Rules, renowned fitness journalist and training coach Matt Fitzgerald cuts through the myths,distilling the most up-to-date science to help runners overcome the universally experienced nutritional barriers that prevent success in the marathon and half marathon. Fitzgerald's powerful and easy-to-use tools will enable runners of all levels to attain their ideal racing weight, calculate their precise daily energy needs, and formulate a custom nutrition plan.

Why another book on triathlon? Triathlon is an addictive sport that is growing in popularity all over the world. Along with this, new books are published about triathlon every year. What's special about this one? This book is written for a specific type of person. This book won't serve you unless you: 1) Are wanting to get started in triathlon. In other words, you're a beginner rather than an expert. 2) You're busy. In other words, you don't have a lot of free time to do extensive amounts of training. This book is written for people who are feeling a bit stuck for how to get started when they don't have the time to follow a demanding training schedule. You might be a parent with young children. You might be a mum or a dad and all your free time is taken up with cooking, cleaning, and looking after your children. You'd love to get fit, get healthy, get outdoors, go swimming, and so on, but you just can't see how. You might be a professional of some kind. You have a demanding job. You need to travel. Work requires that you work late into the evening and have to get up early. Client deadlines make managing your own personal exercise schedule hard. Whatever your situation, this book is written for you if you want to get into triathlon, but you just can't see how you can manage it. Here's my story in brief: two years ago my wife and I went on holiday with our young (pre-school) kids. I was exhausted and worn down by work, and spent the whole week wanting to doze, crash, eat carbohydrates, eat chocolate, drink coffee, or drink alcohol. I felt unbearably lethargic. I resented myself for being such an unfit dad; but I just felt like I was in some kind of weary stupor that I couldn't break out of. And I was only 35! My joints felt stiff and slow, and I felt exhausted every morning I woke up. Sometime during that holiday I decided, I'm going to get healthy; not just fit, but healthy and fit. I'm going to enter a triathlon. I can't not try to do something about this lack of energy and vibrancy. At the same time, an internal voice was saying, 'How?! Your job is too busy, and family life is so demanding. When are you going to get the time to train for a triathlon? And you can hardly swim!' But I continued to say to myself – I'll have to learn and find a way. I can't not try. 6 months later I completed my first triathlon (a sprint distance). A year after that I completed my first half-ironman (1.9k swim, 90k bike, 21k run). And I tell you honestly – I never trained more than 3 hours a week. Most weeks, less than 2. My work and family commitments forced me to read and learn widely about how to train smart to overhaul my health and fitness. This little book gives you the key principles I learnt along the way. I'm not writing this for elite athletes – I'm not an elite athlete myself; please don't buy this if you want to hear from a veteran or an elite athlete. But if you're someone wanting to get started and who feels stuck and constrained at the same time, then I really believe I can help – I've been there, and walked the journey, and kept records of what has really worked. There's great news for you. It really is possible to get started in triathlon, and to become proficient in this wonderful sport of swimming, cycling, and running even when you have a very limited amount of free time. This book covers everything you need to get started in triathlon and everything is written from the perspective of someone who doesn't have a lot of time to train. This book is all about learning to train smart; how to do more with less. Let's jump in!
