Customer Review

on February 21, 2007
I bought this book as a birthday present for my brother (who's sort of into running). I thought I'd have a quick read of it before I gave it to him. I couldn't put this book down - this bloke is immense (and funny), he's pushed his body to it's limits and beyond. A word of warning about the author, he's doesn't seem to need much sleep and is blessed with an abundance of energy. I used to be fairly fit and active years ago before I got married. I raced Triathlon's for a couple of years and even finished the Lanzarote Ironman. I never did enjoy running training but since reading this book, I've run twice, back-to-back this week and I will get away from my computer this summer and race again (first time in 8 yrs). Hopefully this explains a bit about the books contents and the effect it's had on me. Long distance sport is all about what's 'in your head' and making sacrifices in our daily lives.
