Tri Training the Ultimate Guide 2014

Availability: In stock

There are a number of reasons why someone would choose to parlay their passion for triathlon into a career. Talking to professionals here in Australia – both past and present – it doesn’t take long to realise one of the main attractions to the sport is that it rewards hard work. While a certain physiology is advantageous, making the top step of the podium relates more to hard work and the ability to hurt oneself than natural ability. I would hazard a guess that this is also one of the main reasons the age-group ranks at events around Australia continue to swell. But for most, the podium is not the sole indicator of success. Triathlon is largely a competition waged against oneself. Adversaries are not necessarily the other athletes on the racecourse but rather the internal voices that tell us to ignore the alarm clock or flag that last hill repeat.

Triathlon is also a pursuit in which effective training translates into measurable results. Despite being a relatively new sport, the results elite athletes are turning in have come a long way in recent years. In 2011, Craig Alexander won his third Hawaiian Ironman title in a record time of 8:03:56. To athletes and onlookers at the first Hawaiian Ironman back in 1978, it was a time that would have seemed beyond the boundary of human ability. American Gordon Haller won that year in a time of 11:46:58. That time would have seen Haller finish in 1286th place at the 2011 race.

This progress is attributable largely to developments in equipment, nutrition, training methods and a new belief in what is physically possible. So, to help you achieve what you once thought physically impossible, we’ve compiled this handy guide packed with articles from some of the country’s best coaches and triathletes. They range from triathlon tips for first timers to technique pointers for seasoned pros: from nutritional advice for ironman athletes to triathlon bike basics.

Provided you’ve got the desire and the determination, this guide from the team behind Triathlon & Multisport Magazine has everything you need to take your racing to the next level.
