If you are going to do a half ironman distance or longer race, you have to read this book and stick with the guidance therein I attribute the nutrition tips in the book with assisting me in finishing my Ironman It s quite dull in many parts, but it has everything you need opther than a bike, wetsuit, and sneakers.
I wouldn t recommend it unless you re actually training for something, otherwise it d be a little ridiculous.
