This is a sports coaching book. Packed with technique and drills and built on Joe Friel's proven Ultrafit platform, "The Perfect Distance" is the first book to equip triathletes for the long course.

Every facet of effective preparation for a long course event is thoroughly outlined. Extensive appendixes featuring workouts for swim, bike, run, key training sessions, and indoor training make this book the ultimate resource. Sport-specific chapters and detailed instruction on selecting equipment, making smart nutrition decisions, strength training, and overcoming injuries make up a complete resource for triathletes. This is the only book to focus on increasingly popular half-Ironman race distance.
