Joe's insights about specificity and periodization are well accepted by top coaches and competitors. By reading this book you will understand how to peak for your most important competitions. In real life this means that you will "race" and not just "survive" your chosen events.
I originally bought the Cyclists' training bible, and I used it to train for a 200 mile bike race from Denver to Aspen, Colorado (and I placed in the top 10). I subsequently bought this book for my wife, an avid triathlete. She used it to put together a training plan that brought two PRs and improved her times in every leg. Joe's methods work.
Several people have mentioned the value of this work for self-coached athletes. I'm coached, yet I believe it's still my most valuable resource. You can never know too much.
My only misgiving is that my competition will read and follow the book!
You could also stand up with the right foot If you are new to sports but can grasp the knowledge in here.
Good luck training
PS I am waiting for the revised version and I heard it is on the works
He gives excellent instruction for all three sports including how to devise a training plan customized for your goals, the special skills required for each sport, and nutrition. It is a very comprehensive book and will take at least a couple of weeks to finish, but the education is priceless. I never raced a triathlon before this book and after reading it, I felt like I had more information in my head on the subject than most seasoned veterans.
The only negative about this book is that there needs to be more on swimming and to truly become a better swimmer you will need another resource; I believe he suggests Total Immersion by Terry Laughlin. Joe Friel's web site is [...] and you can go there for more tips or to inquire about personal coaching services. I sent him an e-mail questioning something in the book that I didn't understand and he responded the same day. I constantly quote the book to my friends. Maybe that's why it's called the "Bible".
