Overview

USA-Triathlon, the national governing body for multi-sport racing, is committed to fostering the duathlon as the organization’s “growth sport.” With the full backing of USA-Triathlon—including sections on duathlon history and the forthcoming USA-T program for promoting duathlon—author Steven Jonas has penned the first modern guide for the aspiring multi-sport racer who cannot or simply doesn't want to swim. Well known for his original ground-breaking book Triathloning for Ordinary Mortals, which has sold nearly 50,000 copies in two editions, and his USA-Triathlon Life column “Ordinary Mortals ®: Talking Triathlon with Steve Jonas,” the author covers: how the run-bike-run duathlon works; how to have fun, get and stay fit, and promote your health doing duathlons; the training principles and programs for races of varying lengths, from starting from scratch to Doin' the Du on a regular basis throughout the season, centered on a series of 13-week training programs; finding and choosing your races; the basic techniques of running, cycling and fast walking (which can be used on the run legs in both duathlon and triathlon); equipment; race planning and racing; and duathlon as part of a total program for healthy living. This book provides a wealth of knowledge and inspiration from a 29-season multi-sport racer, a prolific author on the subject, who is also a physician and professor of preventive medicine.

"Dr. Steven Jonas is the author of one of the best triathlon training books ever written. Now, he offers his unique perspective as both an endurance athlete and a physician and preventive medicine expert to the duathlon. That's a powerful combination.

With its easy-to-read format and practical advice, it should prove to be a great asset, particularly to those new to the sport." —Roger Brockenbrough, USA-Triathlon Grand Masters Duathlete of the Year, 2010 "Duathlon Training and Racing for Ordinary Mortals® is a great primer on the sport of duathlon. It has everything you need to get you well on your way to duathlon success and enjoyment." —Eric Schwartz of Duathlon.com
