    Great Book but a little cumbersome to use

    I have done three Olympic distance triathlons and am training for my first half ironman. This book does a good job of covering all aspects of triathlon training for all distances. From experience the Olympic plan is solid. Gale does a great job of paring the plans down to what a normal human with a job and kids can handle.<BR/><BR/>The only negative aspect of the book is that the training plans contain codes embedded in the plan and the translation for the code is in another chapter. For example Running S1= pickups, S2=strides, etc. I have gotten around this by copying the four pages of codes and utilizing them as I go through the plan. It would have been better if the publisher had the codes fold out of the book so that you could refer to them while going through the plan.
