    Is this book good for a newbie to training?

    Or is it too advanced?



    Or this a better place to start?



    I'm looking at learning how to train this year so I can begin riding endurance MTB races in 08. Looking for a simple place to start other than simply RIDE YOUR ASS OFF (which I am open to).

    Get both of them. They both cover the various aspects of physical training very well. Friel's book is more big-picture and abstract while Armstrong gets into the nitty-gritty details. Lemond's book is also very good.

    Good advice. I bought both of them recently, great reading/advice.
