This looks interesting, has anyone here read it? Just wondering if it's worth picking up.
Certainly does look interesting, thanks for sharing... Havent read it but soon will have!
Another one on my list, i need to read faster
Any other books anyone can recommend?
Didn't Holgs have a bash at writing one ??
Don Fink " Iron Fit & "Triathletes Bible" by Joe Friel both good reads.
Thanks Razor, both good books indeed, but another two i have already ticked off the list... Im thinking of following on of Finks programs actually next year, had any success with them by any chance?
I think most people tend to follow the Fink plan ...
Cheers M...eldy! Thats just what i wanted to hear
My favourite Ironman book (Holg's volumes excepted of course) was Iron War. Couldn't put it down!
TheBanksy, Iron War is great, although some of it is questioned. Holgs' books are brilliant, especially as I'm a zombie in the second one I followed the Fink plan, it's really good and got me through (even though, no, didn't follow it to the letter ... a plan is just a plan, after all). Becoming an Ironman is good too, lots of IM stories.
I got totally bored with Joe Friel's training book, then was given the other one as a birthday present. Far too technical. FFS just swim a bit, run a bit and bike a lot.
Holgs books are proper inspiration. Great bloke.
thats the plan i follow!
for those slightly more experienced i've been reading the following
some good stuff in there and more being added each week.
i'm not looking to qualify any more but i would like to be up there until the run starts......
Not Normal Behaviour by Stuart Staples is a great book - I read it when I first started in triathlon.
Oh and thanks for the old feedback, much appreciated
No problem holgs! Thanks for the recommendation, certainly havent read that one. Will look into it. Cheers!
Holgs' books got me into lycra too, great books, also Not normal behaviour is a goodun, I prefer reading about peoples experiences for inspiration rather than the more technical ones
Not an Ironman book but I'm just reading Sean Kelly's Autobiography, I'm only 4 chapters in but its a great read, a real insight, he was a hero of mine when I was a nipper watching the milk race and the tour in the early hours on Sunday mornings.
+1 for Iron War. Read it on holiday this year.
I read it immediately after having read Ironholgs' 2nd book.
Both great books, in different ways.
