"70.3 Ironman" is the abbreviation for triathlon competitions that cover half the distance of a classical Ironman Triathlon. However, the Ironman 70.3 consisting of 1.9 km swimming, 90 km cycling and 21.1 km running, i.e. a total of 113 km ir 70.3 miles, is anything but an easy option. It represents a fascinating challenge for any well-trained endurance athlete. A particular highlight of the book is its detailed training plans. There are in-depth examples of core and peripheral training and heart-rate dependent tempo levels T1-T8 which help to illustrate the year-round training recommendations. It also features advice on swimming, cycling and running training and cross-training, equipment, strengthening and stretching, typical training errors, recovery, self-motivating performance testing and motivation tips, but also anecdotes and emotional stories from competitions.
