    triathlon book geared towards older participants

    Hi all!

    I'm looking for a book that approaches triathlon training from the perspective of an older athlete (I'm 48). I have The Triathlon Training Bible and the author does devote a few pages to what he calls Masters training but I thought that a book from someone who has actually been there might be useful. Any ideas?

    thanks!

    I just finished a VERY fun to read and inspirational book by Jayne Adams (?) called 'Slow, Fat Triathlete'. She gives a been-there-done-that perspective on training and racing. Not a 'training' book per se, but a great book that really got me believing that I CAN do this too. I'm only 32, but have always been more of the muscle-head type. Triathlon is something I NEVER thought I could do.

    I was a tri newbie and I used "Triathlon Training in Four Hours a Week" by Eric Harr. Awesome Awesome book. Doesn't matter is your 24 or 64 well worth the read I am 36 btw
