And Doing the Duathlon Too.
20th Anniversary 2nd ed., New York: WW Norton, 2006
The classic beginner's guide to the sport. Over the years, it has sold over 46,000 copies and used by many more thousands of people.
This book is thus one of the best-selling triathlon books of all time. It will help you cross the finish line – and have fun doing it – without turning your life upside down along the way. It incorporates my concepts and programs for training, from the Sprint to the ironman distances. It offers my ideas on everything from choosing your first race to selecting and choosing your equipment. My 31 years of experience clearly illustrate how rewarding and surprisingly painless undertaking multi-sport racing can be. I am a former non-athlete who began running in his mid-40s and did his first triathlon at age 46. Aged 77, at the beginning of the 2014 season I had done 238 multi-sport races including 145+ triathlons.
As Dr. Don Ardell, known as the “Dean of Wellness” internationally, and a national and international age-group champion in both triathlon and duathlon, says in his Foreword, the book “is designed expressly with the Triathlon Everyman and Everywoman in mind. . . . There may be something you need to know about getting started in triathlons or a few ways to make triathloning easier, safer, and more enjoyable that Steve Jonas has not thought about and addressed in this book. Maybe, but I doubt it.”
