"Training for Endurance" by Dr. Philip Maffetone He`s coached Mark Allen and Mike Pigg. I`ve used it for my 1st IM.

Dazzy Boy - You used the MAF stuff?
I bought pccoach a few years ago but just couldn't or wouldn't allow myself to use the Maffetone approach of 180 - age (+- factor). Did you follow it strictly , and how did you do with this approach?

The book "Going Long" by JF & GB is aimed at IM distance training

Here's a good training tip - from a friend who's done lots of long / IM distance events - PB 9:45
"you can do all of the physical training possible, only to be let down by mental weakness"
This is what kept me going in my first IM.

I think that is probably true of anything endurance. I can't will myself to run faster but I can will myself to not quit. It has worked so far.

Ann - Paul's absolutely right. IM is as much about mental strength as physical. I've seen plenty of IM finishers with one leg or other serious disabilities. You are really only limited by what you think you can do.

I can vouch for the 13 hour one, if its the same as the one that was in triathlete mag in 2000. It is nice and simple, easy to follow and honest about true training volumes.
