Description

Internationally recognised coach and best-selling author Joe Friel teams up with ultra-endurance guru Gordon Byrn in this second edition of the most comprehensive guide to racing Ironman-distance triathlons ever written. Combining science with personal experience, Friel and Byrn prepare every triathlete, from the working age-grouper to the podium contender, for success in triathlon's ultimate endurance event. Since the publication of the first edition of "Going Long", registration numbers for Ironman-distance races have soared. Every year, tens of thousands of additional triathletes commit to the sport's greatest challenge. This new second edition embraces this growing group of triathletes who are juggling training, family time and full-time jobs. Sport-specific chapters outline the stages of development for each of the three disciplines of triathlon and describe drills to improve form and efficiency. A newly expanded section on training the mind explores the all-important psychological aspects of racing, including goal-setting and visualisation. A detailed appendix includes key training sessions, workout examples, and strength training progressions. "Going Long" has long been the best-selling book on the subject of training for the Ironman. With expanded content and a new, two-colour format, this second edition is sure to reaffirm its reputation as the premier sourcebook among triathletes who are serious about succeeding in the Ironman-distance.
