I love to get these notes. It feels great to know I can helppeople meet their goals.
Dear Ms. Bernhardt:
I'm writing to thank you for the great training program you outlined in your Training Plans for Multisport Athletes book for the 12 Week Program for a Sprint Triathlon. I successfully completed my first Triathlon yesterday. It was fun. It was exciting. And it was a major accomplishment for this 54 year old male.
I've never taken the time to write to an author before but I found your program informative, easy to understand and a real confidence boost to make my participation a reality.
I'm looking forward to setting my next fitness goal.
All the best,
I'm A. Carratta from Italy,
I wrote you in November about a swim question and after the email I bought thebook with the swim work-out.
I follow your table "26 Weeks to IM" and now I'M AN IRONMAN!!!
Swim : 198.55Km
And the IM time was:
Swim : 01:50:57 ( I'm not aswimmer and my first IM without wetsuit was terrible and infinite! )
Bike: 06:41:27 ( explosion oninner tube and mechanical problems )
Run : 04:13:38 ( i think to doin 3:45, but the hot temperature .- 40° - was terrible and i relax myself)
Final :13:06:05 ... I WASN T TIRED AND I FINISH WITH A BIG SMILE!!!!
Now I'm following "13 weeks to 70.3"
I've used a number of your training plans for successful IM and 70.3 races. I finished the 2012 IM Lake Placid in 11:08 and would love a plan that can get me in under 11 hrs.
Thanks & regards,
