I think this book is a good starting point it covers all distances and any level. It also has a basic weight lifting plan you can follow. I have used it for a starting point in planning my season and just modify as needed but for most people it will cover just about anything you would want to do.

I'll try and find something for you bro, I did triathlons for many years and my wifes' cousin is ranked #1 in the world at triathlon.

 

Is it Olympic distance or a sprint one? How long have you got to get ready and what fitness base are you at right now? Cheers MF.

 

I am not doing a Sprint Tri (actually a dualthon) until May. My fitness right now is slacking due to laziness at the moment. I have only be doing some weight training and occasional ride on the trainer during the week.

Cycling is my strong sport. I signed up for a sprint tri last year with only 2 weeks to figure out how to run properly. I did better than expected.

 

I am hoping to do more Tri's this year and make it my main focus fitness wise.

 

And rambling... done.

I got the Triathlon Training Bible when I first started and it wasn't really helpful in getting going on training as it doesn't have workouts or sample training plans. That said it does have a lot of great information but it didn't really become practical until a year or so into racing when I had started to get a better understanding of the sport from experience.

Thanks for the heads up on that. I am going to hold off on that one for now and order the one your suggested.

 

Thanks again!
