Now there are some commonalities among many of the sources on general nutrition, base training, periodization approaches, and simple time management as your getting started, but even the so called “Triathlon Bibles” have dramatically different approaches.

I found myself wondering what makes someone qualified to write a how-to book or so called bible of the sport?  If you read the bio of the author (if you can even find it) you’ll quickly realize that many of them are not athletes or physicians and really have no basis taking an authoritative position on the subject.  Just because you’re currently training for an event or you’ve done a couple in the past, doesn’t make you an expert in the field, let alone qualified to give others advice on how to accomplish their goals.  I frequently see this in the blogging world and especially on the fitness forums where training advice is being given by an “expert” that is called an expert simply by the number of posts they’ve responded to or articles they’ve written.
