Summary

You Are a Badass for aspiring triathletes: a practical and inspiring guide to getting off the couch and on the trail to race your first - or 50th - triathlon

When Meredith Atwood first shared her journey from tired, overworked wife and mom to successful triathlete, her story resonated with women everywhere, online at SwimBikeMom.com and in the first edition of Triathlon for the Every Woman. Now with her own IRONMAN finishes, experience, and triathlon coaching expertise, Meredith is back with even more wisdom. In this fully revised edition, Atwood not only shares how she went from the couch to an IRONMAN 70.3 triathlon in just over a year, but also shares the latest expertise from coaches, nutritionists, and athletes on each component of the triathlon: swimming, biking, and running. With compact training plans, the most current nutrition advice, updated resources, and the latest information on long-distance racing, this new edition has all you need to make your triathlon goals a reality.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What a fun engaging book

I absolutely loved this book , it is funny and authentic to the smallest detail , I loved Meredith's journey and her attitude towards finding balance and keeping going through sometimes rather tough lessons . Also found it helpful to get ready for my first Tri as it's packed with practical information and advice on how to go from couch to tri. She shares her passion for the sport and her journey with such delightful lightness ... I will be listening to this again soon.
One life live it to the fullest.

Great tips

It really covers everything. Perfect for a beginner.
I will be re-listening to some chapters as I go through my training and closer to race. The PDF is very helpful too. Lots of tips and templates.

Most Informative & Inspirational!

This book is a great story about how someone snapped out of the mundane and entered a new world of physical, psychological and emotional challenges. Meredith is intelligent, brave and all inspiring! After years of knee injuries, multiple bouts of never reached fitness goals, I can finally say that thanks to her, I am confident that I too, can compete in triathalon. All this while juggling a demanding career, children and a husband! I really have no excuses...There is greatly detailed technical info about training, nutrition, gear and competition day, that it won't disappoint!

Loved it!

As I'm preparing for my first triathlon, this book was perfect. In addition to helpful "how to" info, the book is filled with priceless mindset advice. It's a great combination of expertise, vulnerability, authenticity, and humor. It's a winner!
