    Learn how it is possible to stretch your limits and achieve the impossible as Rhys Chong reveals his personal experiences of training and racing in an Ironman Triathlon, despite only having a year to prepare. Completing an Ironman Triathlon is no mean feat. An Ironman means facing a 2.4-mile (3.86km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25km) bike and a marathon 26.2-mile (42.2km) run, raced in that order without a break. What's more, most Ironman events have a strict time limit of 17 hours to complete the race. So it's no wonder that with no prior training, Physiotherapist Rhys believed that he could never complete one. However, after training consistently for a year and working with a team of experienced professionals, Rhys eventually enjoyed the sweet success of crossing the finish line of his first Ironman in Switzerland in just 12 hours 55 seconds. To celebrate achieving this life ambition, Rhys has written First Time Ironman to provide a glimpse into the training required for an Ironman and to inspire people who may have similar sports ambitions, but are limited by their beliefs that they can succeed. Also, Rhys wants to encourage anyone facing a challenge in their life that by "having the guts to confront their fears and prepare for the unknown, they could be at the start of an incredible life-changing journey." Completing an Ironman is something you will ultimately face alone; however, the preparation is very much a team sport. "First Time Ironman" not only tells the experience like it is, but explores the support and expert guidance Rhys obtained to make an Ironman journey a happy, healthy, but most of all a memorable experience.
