This is a GREAT book if you are a self-trained individual pursuing the Ironman dream or trying to shave off some minutes of your personal record. It is very detailed and in-depth and Matt puts a lot of focus on helping you understand the purpose of the sessions and what each element of training is meant to provide. I can't stress this enough because it is a key part of his approach. Other books that I've read pretty much only subscriped a training plan and I would follow it along as smoothly as ...more

I enjoyed Dixon's pragmatic approach to training within your life. His emphasis on training, sleep, fueling, and strength make for sensible and attainable training plans. While I have some running specific goals I hope to accomplish before taking on an Ironman or 70.3, I'd use this book as a resource for those events.

Balanced Perspectives and approach

Recently I have been primarily a marathon runner who is preparing for my first IRONMAN 70.3. I was concerned about squeezing the additional training time but this book presents some helpful advice and encouragement to keep the most important things in life as priorities over training. I now have more confidence that I can get more value out of each workout and be prepared my race.
