My main area of weakness is my mentral strength. I'm looking t buy some books on techniques and exercises so to improve this weak aspect of my training.
Can anyone suggest a book that has helped them?
I don't really know that there are any aimed particularly at runners. One of Matt Fitzgerad's books is called Brain Training for Runners but I'm not sure whether it's exactly the sort of thing you want - I haven't read it myself. Probably any book with mental focus techniques would do. You might be better off with inspirational running books, biographies of people who've done some amazing stuff, that sort of thing? He also wrote one called Iron War about a rather epic Ironman race.
You're asking for help to find a self-help book?
Tom, can you be more specific about what you perceive to be your weakness? When you say you want to improve mental strength, what does that mean?
You're lazy when it comes to getting off the couch? You're easily manipulated? You're a doormat in relationships? The self help book industry is HUGE. I'd suggest narrowing down your search a bit. HTH
