About This Book

You can do a triathlon — and Triathlon Training For Dummies will add to your confidence and help you improve your performance, comfort, and fun when you do. This book best answers the questions of triathletes who are new to the sport because it was written from that same perspective, focusing on simplifying the complex equipment needs of triathletes and creating training programs you can understand and follow without a calculator, heart monitor, or PhD.

This book is a collaboration of many experienced triathletes who shared their training tips and event expertise. It's the triathlon-training book for real people (because not everyone is an Ironman or wants to be), taking you from novice to knowledgeable.

Depending on the length of the triathlon you choose, you'll find that what motivates most triathletes has nothing to do with beating you. What you're more likely to find is team spirit: We're in this together — let's get it done and see how far we can push ourselves.

That's an energy that's infectious. And the discipline, self-confidence, and fitness that come from triathlon training will enhance other areas of your life. So, don't be surprised if you start a mini triathlon trend in your own circle. People will recognize the positive effects that your training has on you. And they'll want some of that for themselves.

Share your gear. Share your knowledge. The book? Sure, you can share that, too — but we're hoping you'll find the information in these pages so helpful to your daily training that you'll tell your friends to buy their own copies.

In this book, we give you answers to the many questions you're thinking right now: What equipment do I need? How do I find time for training? What do I need to know about transitions? Will I make it to the finish? (Trust us, you will.)
