I need a kick up the arse and a new hobby.
The post marathon depression has well and truly been taking it's toll along with the great Scottish summer ie. never ending drizzle.
Can't attend running club any more thanks to a new work/study schedule.
I was wandering about on Amazon. (Big mistake) and started looking at some sports books, looking for a bit of inspiration to help me move forward and would like to know if anyone has any recommendations?
Any books that are biking, running or generally motivational?
I'd second that - I recommended Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run to someone else on here today. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cant-Swim-Ride-Run-Triathlon/dp/1848187432
I would recommend Chris Moon's book 'One Step Beyond'. It's not a sport focussed book but it does include him rehabbing for marathons and that longish hot one with all the sand. I found it incredibly inspirational - especially as I then ran past him at a marathon a few weeks after finishing the book.
Chrissie Wellington book 'A life without limits'.
Just finished it and its an amazing book.
NoChain: I really enjoyed it.Great read.
The book 'Tea with Mr Newton' about the Ultra Legend Arthur Newton, is a very good book.
Another vote for Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run- you never know, it might inspire you to join us over on the triathlon thread! The author Andy Holgate is one of us.
Born to Run.
+1 for born to run - this book just made me go out and run every day and I read it through my entry in to the world of running. Massive motivator for me.
Next on the list is<span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Trebuchet, Arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run.
<span style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Trebuchet, Arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Excellent thread by the way. I hope lots more people chip in with ideas.
Agreement from me that ''Born to Run' is a cracking book.
Sausage Dog: Enjoy the read.
I agree - Born to Run is great and also really enjoyed Chrissie Wellington A life without Limits.
Just started reading Scott Jurek's book - Eat and Run - all good stuff and very motivational.
Sorry just remembered another one - A. Finn - Running with the Kenyans (thinks that's the title) - very interesting and written by a journalist who used to run and write on RW, went to live in Kenya with his family to discover how the kenyans run so fast. Well worth a read.......
can't swim, can't bike, cant run is excellent, lance armstrongs book is good and i'm part way through born to run. All good reads
Running with Kenyans. Looks a good read. Read the weekly thread about the guy writing it last year in Gurardian.
