Whether just getting interested in triathlons or a multi-sport veteran, readers of this new handbook will get tuned up and stoked to reach any performance goal! Author Terri Schneider explains how to train for a first triathlon, as well as how to formulate an ongoing experience or a longer-term race regimen. Basic techniques for building a foundation of success are accompanied by lessons in heart-rate levels and suggestions for how to integrate a training schedule into daily life. From the early stages of training and making decisions on what gear to buy through to race day and beyond, Schneider covers everything from nutritional information to endurance issues, mental strategies, stretching, setting up transition areas, off-season training, and more.

This book is worthless, and the author very lackluster. I can't believe a company published this rubbish. She was a very poor athlete to begin with, and now we are supposed to believe she has all the answers. No thank you!

If you have never raced a triathlon and know nothing about the sport, then you might get a tiny bit of information from this book. However if you have any experience at all, pass this book up. It completely lacks any current information, and no good factual or clinical research to back it up. It doesn't include any testimonial from athletes she has trained. In her own words, she has only trained beginner triathletes, and never anyone at the elite level.
