Sure, you could go download one of those basic sprint tri training plans. They tell you how much to swim, bike, and run each day.
But is that really all you need?
For me, it’s not. Even as an experienced runner and ultramarathoner, the idea of doing a triathlon — a swim, bike, and run, one after another — seems overwhelming:
An open-water swim? What happens if I need a break in the middle of it?
Do I need to buy an expensive new bike, and all that stuff to go with it? What about shifting gears? And I need to watch the road, too!?
And what about those transitions? I wouldn’t know where to begin with moving from one sport to another … not to mention how to train each one equally.
Fears like this have prevented me — and you too, I’d bet — from becoming a triathlete. There are just too many unknowns; too much to deal with at once.
Like I said, you could just download a cookie-cutter, bare-bones training plan, and get it done (well, maybe). But don’t you deserve better?
For your first triathlon, you deserve a roadmap to help you navigate from your particular starting point — whether you’re sitting on the couch or regularly running marathons. You deserve to know what gear you’ll need, and where you can save your money (hint: you don’t need to buy a fancy bike — just about any will do for your first tri). And you need to know how to choose a race that matches your skills and the best ways to get to the start line of your triathlon happy, healthy, and injury-free.
And perhaps most importantly...
You deserve a plan that acknowledges that you’re achieving all this swim-bike-run badassery on a plant-based diet.
Susan has almost a decade of triathlon experience, racing everything from super-sprint to Ironman. Also, featured writer for Triathlete, Competitor Running, and Women's Running magazines and author of Life's Too Short To Go So F*cking Slow and the soon-to-be-released Running Outside The Comfort Zone. But maybe most importantly, she's No Meat Athlete's very own NMA Resident Triathlete.
I contributed my two cents about plant-based nutrition for maximum fitness and endurance, and we worked together to fashion this newest Roadmap in the same step-by-step, easy-to-follow style of the Marathon Roadmap and Half Marathon Roadmap that have helped thousands of plant-based runners finish their first races of these distances.
In the Triathlon Roadmap, you’ll get the workouts. You’ll learn what to eat to maximize your nutrition and speed your recovery. You’ll get recipes. You’ll know what to expect on race day — and you’ll rock it.
You don’t need to be a super-athlete, you don’t need to count calories, and you don’t need fancy gadgets. All you need is our Roadmap and some drive, and we can get you across the finish line of your first sprint triathlon feeling strong and satisfied.
And — just as importantly — you’ll have time left over to devote to your job, your family, and whatever else matters to you, even at the peak of your training. If triathlon training has to mess up the rest of your life, it’s just not worth it to us.
Author Susan Lacke went from couch potato to Ironman triathlete (that’s a 2.4-mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 miles of running) in less than two years. That’s the kind of expert I want to learn from.
But she’s not only one here to help you. In the Roadmap, you’ll also hear from experts like Hillary Biscay, Jason Bahamundi, and many other vegan and vegetarian athletes, all at the top of their game … and all with a wealth of knowledge garnered from years of experience.
Finally — a complete triathlon training guide, for plant-based athletes, by plant-based athletes.
“Susan has made herself the test bunny. She’s been around the sport for awhile now, seen and experienced a lot — suffered plenty too, to save you some. There is still plenty of work to be done between now and your first race, but Susan’s guide eliminates a lot of the guesswork for you.”
