Triathlon: Winning at 70.3 is dedicated to all triathletes who are thinking about stepping up to the middle distance. 70.3 Half Ironman training requires quite a different approach to the shorter distances, and to be successful, a more professional approach to training is required. Do not set yourself up for failure on race day! Simply doubling your Olympic distance training will not work. Those who do this will struggle. Do not be one of these!

This comprehensive book will give you a specific road map to 70.3 triathlon training and help you properly prepare for your event. It will include race day nutrition strategies, goal setting tips, help you find your ideal race weight, help you train at the right intensity, understand exactly how much fluid to drink, recovery strategies of the pros, strength training strategies that work, and much more.

70.3 triathlon is a serious step up and preparation is key. Luckily if you do it right, 70.3 training is something that you can fit into a busy life, help you get in the best shape of your life, and succeed. Remove the guesswork and learn what the pros do. This book will cover:

  • How to develop a specific 70.3 training plan that will super charge your race results
  • Advanced recovery strategies so you can train just as hard the following day and not burn out through the season
  • How to prevent injury and maintain a healthy body
  • Learn exactly how much to eat and drink on race day so you avoid costly nutrition mistakes
  • Develop incredible strength in the key muscle groups
  • Summon your mental toughness and inner warrior

Must read for every triathlete

I have 8 years of triathlon experience with two 70.3's and one iron distance behind me and I have already registered for my next 70.3. I really enjoy this sport. This book is a fantastic way to learn the pearls of wisdom to help you really progress. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to get more out of their next triathlon.

Excellent pointers for For triathletes

This book has a ton of valuable information. It got me excited for my goal (first 70.3) and showed me the importance of trusting the process. Golding provides scaffolding for those just entering the sport as well as advice on scientific methodologies. I'm listening to it again and have bookmarked several chapters to review later.

Lots of good information & Lots of repetition!

The lack of personal triumphant story examples is the only reason I am giving this book a 4 star review. I like information wrapped around a compelling story to support the facts. There were times as I listened to the book that my mind temporarily disengaged not because the information was not good but that it lacked a little life example to keep me intrigued. I still listened to the the book and reviewed certain sections multiple times. There was a lot of repetition when it related to cross information from chapter to chapter. Consolidation of certain statements might have made each chapter feel less repetitive. Overall I probably needed to hear most of this over and over again so It would sink in.

Excellent audiobook

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Very easy to get into and instantly reminded me things I had heard, but have never encorporated into my training plans. Dan had written this in a very practical way, so the listener can follow and apply the lessons learnt. Highly recommended to triathletes tackling 70.3 distance!!
