Overview

One-Hour Workouts is a collection of 50 swim, bike, and run workouts from top triathlon coaches that anyone can fit into a lunch hour--including warm-up and cool-down.

Athletes can choose from base, tempo, or speed workouts in each sport to match their training plan's goal for the day.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
One-Hour Workouts is a practical guide for on-the-go athletes who need to maximize their 60-minute training window. The book has something for athletes of all levels.” — Triathlete magazine

“[One-Hour Workouts is] an antidote to a busy day—just the thing for days where a one-hour window is all we’ve got…This rugged, spiral-bound book will hold its own when tossed into a bag alongside your gear, and it’s also compact, leaving plenty of room for that post-bike snack you’re already looking forward to.” — LAVA magazine

“I've been able to work almost all of [the One-Hour Workouts] into my training and I found them very effective...More than a few of them are now in my permanant rotation and are a welcome change. Interspersed throughout the book, the authors offer nuggets of advice and humor making it a great book for everyone from busy business professionals to homemakers.” — TriEdge.net

    Michael Jacques has been around endurance sports longer than even he cares to remember as a runner since age seven and cyclist since age 15. Based in Wellington, New Zealand, with his wife, two kids, one cat, three birds, five bikes and way too many shoes and books, he coaches, writes and organizes events in between planning an attack on the 40-plus age group.
