I love this book. I tend to workout at around 5am and trying to think of a structured workout at that time of the day is impossible. This book makes it easy from long base runs to fast treadmill sessions it has a fully detailed workout for all levels.

An Excellent Source of Workouts Aug. 31 2010
By codegeek - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
You get that for which you pay. This book delivers on its promise. None of the workouts are "run for one hour" either. As an active triathlete, I am always looking for workouts to insert into my annual training plan. This book comes with 50 base, tempo, and speed workouts in each discipline. Basically, that gives you five or six workouts you can incorporate into each phase of your training (base, build, peak, etc). In addition, the authors provide advice on almost all the workouts on how to change it up, adapt it to your situation, and create different flavors of the same workout. For those of us that crave variety, this book doesn't have enough workouts to build an entire annual training plan for every distance, but it does have some really good workouts and advice on how to implement them.

I gave this book five stars because it is deserved. What frustrates me, however, is a lack of "advanced workouts" that coaches save for the athletes they are personally training. Even just one or two of those per discipline would have been nice (and that's really the only complaint I could come up with :-). Overall, this book is an excellent value. A few judicious purchases of other books with workouts combined with some internet research, and you'll have everything you need to fill in the workouts for an entire season of triathlon training.

Sweet - Even for a Newbie! Jan. 30 2011

Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I am new to triathlon training, and I needed some easy-to-grasp "short" workouts to get me started in my training over the winter. I was very impressed with the quality of the book's design & construction (all laminated pages, small enough to bring to the gym with you) and the clarity of the instructions. I can't wait to put these workouts to use!

must have for any kind of training June 7 2011
By shotgun raju - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Even if you don't do tris. this is a great book. Great one hour workouts, I use it all the time. My 2 complaints are 1. some of the workouts are not well explained (like when do you take a rest lap etc) and the other is that it is "sweat proof" not water proof.
Has bonus lifting routines at the back.

has upped my "game" Feb. 27 2013
By aliwentworth - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I consider myself an Advanced Beginner triathlete, concentrating on sprint length events. I really like this book as I am also a full time employed mother and wife. I can easily get a really good workout in during my lunch...give or take the time it takes to change in and out of work out clothes and of course stop sweating! I also find them easily adaptable to the days that I may need to be out of the gym in 45 min. The inclusion of Gym (indoor) workouts is great too, since we can't always drag our gear all over the place. I highly recommend this training tool.

This book is awesome June 23 2013
By Mary J Hill - Published on

If you want to make sure you're getting everything you can out of a little amount of time while training for a triathlon this book is for you. I'm out of bed by 4:30 and in the pool by 4:40 and can still get to work by 7, even while taking care of all my lady business. It also has given me lots of ideas on how to train so that I don't lose my mind with boredom. I write the swim workout on my arm and it has been really effective. Lots of helpful tips and reasons why you need to incorporate certain aspects into your training, like brick.
