Reviews - What do customers think about Going Long: Training for Ironman-Distance Triathlons (Ultrafit Multisport Training Series)?

Great book  Sep 15, 2008
This book is very informative and helpful to those making the transition to Half and Ironman distance tri's. I would have given this book a five star if I didn't already have Gale Bernhardt's training plans for multisport athletes. All the info in Going long is in Gale's book. They obviously consulted one another when writing their respective books. I recommend Gale's book if you plan on doing different distance Tri's. Joe's book is more specific to the Ironman distance athlete. Good luck and always ride with a tailwind.
If you want to go for the long distance - it will help you to suffer with style  Jun 3, 2008
Going Long: Training for Ironman-Distance Triathlons (Ultrafit Multisport Training Series)
is a superb book for any athlete (beginner or pro)! Specially I liked the chapter about the mental training for the Ironman competition. I only can recommend it! Happy training!
Great Book !!  Apr 29, 2008
The problem when you start training for a long endurance event like the Ironman is that every second athlete has his or her own opinion and way of training. This confused me a lot.

I decided to seek some professional help and use this book to train for my first Ironman and I can honestly say this book is remarkable. The level of detail is intense, so you have to be patient and read some sections several times to really grasp and remember all the advice given in the chapters, i.e. nutrition, discipline-specific training techniques, etc.

You also need to apply the knowledge with some common sense, because it has been written with advice for every athlete from novice to elite. So make sure you know where you fall on the scale and what you want to achieve and use the advice that is applicable to you.

But, in general, I found the training principles in this book to be accurate and now that I have completed an Ironman I can say that they work. Lately I have discovered that many of the Ironman athletes I meet also used this book to train from.

So you can buy and use it with confidence. Good luck!
good Intradution to ironman  Sep 15, 2007
Is agood book to reed and ,you can extract many positive advise,good review on diet.
Not for beginners but a good source!  Jul 28, 2007
I have a few books for Tri and i found this very good source for those who would like to try IM or any races that equivalent to it. For beginners, start with other Tri books and when you're planning to prep-up for 50+ miles tri races, use this book as a guide.
I'm no expert but i did a few tri-races and this is my ultimate guide...i even sleep with it.
