Want to learn how to race faster by training less? Want to discover the world’s best spot to train?

Pick up the May/June issue of Inside Triathlon magazine, on newsstands now, to find out how to race your best with limited training time, what city triathletes are flocking to for extended training camps, why you’re probably training too hard on your easy days and training too easy on your hard days, and much more.

The May/June issue also delves into the Lance Armstrong factor, asking Kona greats Dave Scott and Chris McCormack how they would advise Lance for the Ironman World Championships this fall, and it outlines why Lance is a better runner than you think. (We asked one of his early triathlon coaches what Armstrong was like as a young triathlete—and he was one fast runner.)

The issue’s cover models, American ITU athletes Jarrod Shoemaker and Matt Chrabot, also headline Inside Triathlon’s preview of the U.S. Olympic Trials, which will be held on May 11 and 12 in San Diego. Shoemaker and Chrabot have earned the United States the right to send two men to the Olympics in triathlon by traveling around the world, sacrificing non-drafting and sponsorship opportunities at home in the process. Now, they must fight for an individual spot on the team.
