"Going Long" is the most comprehensive guide to racing long-course 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. Sport-specific chapters outline training for each triathlon discipline 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 long course. With expanded content and a new, two-colour format, this second edition is once again the premier sourcebook for triathletes who are serious about succeeding in the long-course distance.
