For a long time I read triathlon training book to get some motivation to my training. The book I selected was Be Iron Fit, 2nd: Time-Efficient Training Secrets for Ultimate Fitness by Don Fink.

I started reading this book to understand what it would take to train for an Ironman. I found it incredibly comprehensive and inspirational so much so that I registered for my first Ironman before completing the book.

Matt Jones
Great reference for full iron distance training. Best value for three full training programs included

Good book for people who want to start their ironman journey or simply like the ironman lifestyle.
