The second edition of Training and Racing with a Power Meter by Hunter Allen and Dr. Andrew R. Coggan was released in the first week of May 2010. The first edition (published in 2006) has become THE reference guide on training and racing with a power meter. The second edition promises to become the new reference guide!
The second edition adds three new chapters to the book (including “Power Tools” and “Developing Your Power-Based Training Plan”) and many updates. The larger format and new, easy-to-understand charts make this book a must have for all power meter users or anything thinking about starting to train with power. A full chapter on triathlons will help triathletes understand key principles on utilizing a power meter for training and racing at their chosen distance. Creating your peak of fitness at the time that you want it is detailed in the “Performance Manager” chapter. Allen and Coggan reveal the critical things you need to know in order to come onto “form” when you want to. A new training plan has been added to help guide you in the last eight weeks prior to your A event, and an easy-to-read menu of workouts allows you to choose the best workout for the day; this addition alone is worth it! If you have the first edition, you’ll want the second edition to help keep you at the top of your fitness.
