Why is the Half Iron-Distance the most popular triathlon distance? Because it is the perfect length for busy athletes with demanding career and family responsibilities. Full Iron-Distance races require such painstaking planning and sacrifice that it’s difficult to keep life in balance. The Half Iron-Distance is accessible, while remaining challenging. Also known as the “70.3” for the sum of its 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, and 13.1 mile run, the half-iron triathlon is not simply a race for which an athlete can use a full-iron training regimen chopped in half. Doing so would in no way approach maximizing an athlete’s performance. The races are performed at completely different intensity levels, with completely different approaches. As a result, the training is completely different. IronFit Secrets to Half Iron-Distance Triathlon Success does for the half-iron what Be IronFit has done for the full-iron. It provides three sixteen-week training programs—Competitive, Intermediate, and “Just Finish”—and details everything an athlete needs to know to successfully prepare for and maximize performance at this racing distance. In as little as four months, any athlete can be physically and mentally ready for the world’s most popular triathlon challenge.

Completing IronFit’s “triathlon trilogy” alongside Be IronFit and IronFit Secrets for Half Iron-Distance Success, this is a “go-to,” time-efficient training guide for the Standard and Sprint-distance triathlons, which are the most accessible and achievable distances for time-crunched athletes. The Standard Distance is the original triathlon configuration: a 1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, and 10 km run (0.9 mile swim, 24.8 mile bike, and 6.2 mile run). The Sprint Distance usually includes a 750 meter swim, 20 km bike, and 5 km run (Half mile swim, 12.4 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run). And there are duathlon equivalents of both triathlon races. These Short Course distances are the “everyman” races of the sport, and Don and Melanie Fink offer their time-efficient IronFit® training approach to them here in this book.

In diesem beeindruckenden Bildband versammelt die Fotografin Kate T. Parker mehr als 175 Aufnahmen von Mädchen im Alter von 5 bis 18 Jahren. Sie porträtiert abenteuerlustige, freche und neugierige, aber auch ruhige, nachdenkliche und kreative Mädchen. Eines haben sie alle gemeinsam: Sie sind authentisch und mutig genug, sich vor der Kamera so zu zeigen, wie sie wirklich sind: wild, frei und wunderbar! Ihre Aufnahmen beweisen, dass wahre Schönheit nichts mit einer bestimmten Körperform zu tun hat, nichts damit, ob man lächelt, seine Haare frisiert oder sich hübsch zurechtgemacht hat. Dieser unvergessliche Fotoband sprengt alle Stereotype und zeigt, dass Mädchen alles sein können, was sie wollen – solange sie sie selbst sein dürfen.
