Matt Fitzgerald

February 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
For those ambitious enough to voluntarily agree to swim, bike and run their way through a triathlon, Triathlete contributor Fitzgerald proposes this impressive, wide-ranging guide.

The Waterproof Coach by Thomas Denes is the perfect training companion for both the beginning swimmer and the seasoned triathlete looking to jazz up a workout.

It's a spiral-bound workout book with waterproof pages cut into three segments, like a children's picture flip book. Each third of a page is either a warm-up, a main set, or a warm-down, ranging from easy to advanced. You can swim the workout on a...
