    If you liked that and can get your hands on it check out inside a marathon. A book produced by the same team (NAZ elite)

    It’s basically a training log from both coach and athlete perspectives independently in his build up to top 10 finish in NYC marathon.

    Hard to get KSU, but looks good.

    I think it’s in kindle now in Amazon.

    Thankfully I had a kind sole to redirect from a US address to allow me order




  • I really enjoyed listening to Paul Tonkinson’s book ‘26.2 miles to happiness’ on Audible over the past few days, very well written, he’s a comedian and Runners world columnist who charts his quest for a sub 3 marathon at London,

    Read the book myself, very good read with some great humour added in from Tonkinson.




  • Beyond Impossible by Mimi Anderson

    Story of a woman's journey from an eating disorder to doing some big big endurance races. Nothing training wise within it but it's a nice story that I enjoyed.

    Only covered the first few weeks of the training log in this book but it's very interesting to see the different perspectives of the athlete and coach as it's progressed.

    Finished both of these and enjoyed both.

    Anymore recommendations? 80/20 still on the reading list but waiting till after current training block.

    Here it is on goodreads.




  • The new book called’The lost art of running’ is really good




  • The new book called’The lost art of running’ is really good

    Thank you for giving me the name of this. I'd heard about it on a podcast I was listening to when running but couldn't remember what podcast series/episode it was or the name of the book.




  • Currently reading 'Sonia, My Story'. It's not a new (2008 I think) but I can't put it down, so interesting reading all that went on in the background in the 80's and 90's and her thoughts on *those* Chinese as well as the pure crap the BLE put our Athletes through back then.

  • Excellent article in the Indo today on the great Frank O’Mara and his battle with Parkinson’s disease..




  • Really enjoyed Deena Kastor's book 'Let your mind run' - great insight into the mental as well as the physical side of running.




  • "The Science and Practice of Middle and Long Distance Running"

    Will be buying this soon and apologies can't post links. Seems to be on sale from June but amazon seem to have it now. Has anyone read it yet?

    Contributions from "Tergat" (boards username, not the real Tergat) so a must have for my collection.
