Monrovia, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2008
Endurance Nation (EN), the state-of-the-art on-line triathlon training and coaching community, announces the availability of its new free comprehensive ebook, The Endurance Nation Long Course Triathlon Training Manual.
Known to EN athletes as "The Book," this 110-page manual contains everything the age-group, long course triathlete needs to get fitter, faster, and smarter. "The Book" examines a wide range of topics crucial to Ironman and Half Ironman athletes including "Exercise Physiology and the EN Approach," "Long Course Execution and Strategy," as well as specific recommendations for effective swim, bike, and run training. An overview of sample training weeks, racing tactics, and a full-complement of case studies is also included. The Endurance Nation Long Course Training Manual can be downloaded for FREE by visiting the EN web site.
Says Endurance Nation coach and co-founder Patrick McCrann, "'The EN Long Course Training Manual' is based not only on solid science, but on the experience of coaching hundreds of triathletes who are real people in the real world, with real lives, and real time constraints. "The Book" turns a lot of what permeates Ironman training on its head. We lay to rest the many social and cultural endurance myths that drive how triathletes train. Instead, we guide our members to faster times with less volume and more specific training."
Continues co-founder and coach Rich Strauss, "The mission of Endurance Nation is to provide high quality, affordable training for triathletes with one clear, consistent, and unified coaching message. 'The Book' is just one element in an extensive arsenal of training tools we have available. Our members have access not only to our decades-long coaching expertise, but to a full complement of podcasts, webinars, phone chats, and special training events that steer our athletes from the off-season to race day. The Endurance Nation experience is capped by our dynamic, member-driven community that--guided by Patrick and me--focuses on learning, networking, and training through the online discussion forum."
Concludes McCrann, "'The Long Course Triathlon Training Manual'" is likely the last triathlon training book athletes will need. Annual updates will keep the science fresh and the training progressive. 'The Book' is another a clear example of why Endurance Nation is the most cost-effective and best coaching value in the tri-space, period. Rich and I are committed to exceeding our member's coaching expectations."
