Being a junior triathlete in NZ in the 90’s I grew up racing against and being inspired by the likes of John Hellemans. I attended training camps that he ran, and this book gives a great insight into his life and challenges during that time as well as before and after.
This book is a staple on my bookshelf and I’ve owned all editions buying my first one back in the day whilst I was at University. It is full of plenty of theory and methodology about how to periodise training plans and gives real time examples of programmes and how to structure them for individuals.
