What I was able to learn:
1. This is possible even for a somewhat fit 41 year old like myself whom can't swim, bike or run.
2. The goal is finishing not "winning".
3. I liked the training program and not having to think about what to do next to get in shape for each leg of the triathlon.
4. How to prepare for the race day and what to expect.
As a beginner preparing for my first triathlon I found 7 Weeks an invaluable guide to training and preparing for a triathlon. It eased my fears and gave me the sense that even at my age and fitness level that in only 7 weeks by following the program I could finish a triathlon and finally be able to talk some fitness trash to my buddies.
A must have for those beginners like myself to get over your training anxieties and give you the courage and belief that you too can complete a triathlon.
- training plans are spot on for beginners and advanced athletes
- race day checklist is a great way to calm the nerves for your first race
- the pro tips are great!
- no middle ground advice for an intermediate athlete
- effort in each workout isn't discussed (although it is a nice skill to hone learning paces on your own)
- IMHO too much time spent on cross training
