In “Your Best Triathlon,” Friel defines the goals of each training phase and explains his strategies for achieving them. Triathletes will use Friel’s training plans for sprint, Olympic, Ironman 70.3, and Ironman race distances and will master Friel’s most effective workouts to improve specific abilities like endurance, economy, and muscular power. Within each workout and training plan, Friel offers simple modifications to better manage personal limiters. “Your Best Triathlon” adds depth and detail to the “Training Bible” approach, presenting relevant information at the right phase of training. Triathletes will refer to “Your Best Triathlon” throughout the season, just as they would check in with their coach.
