The modern elite triathlete has to be able to swim fast; to cycle fast and to run extremely fast; physically able to sustain an intense effort for nearly two hours; robust enough to train for between 20 & 30 hours a week; intelligent enough to sustain a complex training programme of three disciplines plus a large amount of general strength and conditioning training; tactically aware and astute; and independent enough to compete, often alone and unsupported, in a variety of courses and venues all over the world…
This book will help you to understand the sport of drafting triathlon. You’ll look at the swim in a new light, you’ll make sense of the tactics on the cycle, and you’ll be even more amazed at how fast the top triathletes run. You’ll understand something of what it takes to become an elite triathlete and you’ll have a pretty good idea of how to become a better triathlete yourself.
Triathlon coach Tim Williams guides you through a sport in which Britain leads the world.
