    agree with other reader little emphasis on mental toughness I'm not an athlete but I'm picked up some relevant wisdom from the book 1 focus on what you can control 2 intention and behavior relationship 3 training to race or race to train as long as it works for you4 have patience slow and steady consistent training don't be impatience5 shortcuts usually don't work 6 improvement is gradual built upon layer and layer of training and training doesn't lie can apply in other aspect of life

    I first came across this book after doing Joanna Zeiger's mental toughness online uiz There's a sport I want to get better at and the mental game is a big part of improving Anyway in the uiz I came in at a white belt ie not mentally toughwhich got me interested in the book because I always thought of myself as being pretty strong willed so maybe there's something I don't know The book is about her life experience as a professional swimmer triathlete and runner and what it takes to drive yourself mentally and follow through to a win And while the sport I'm interested in is not an endurance sport and I have no experience or even much interest in competitive endurance sports I felt that what she talked about can be applied to any discipline Some takeaways that made this book worth it figuring out if you're the type of person who trains to race or races to train the evidence that giving yourself corny pep talks actually improves your results and that making sure you're really enjoying it all the time even when it's painful can keep you going I recommend reading her polls of other racers with and without these ualities and her own experiences You definitely get the sense that she speaks from grueling experiencewhich is a lot better than hearing someone's theories on the topic I'd also recommend the uizthe results might surprise you

    pretty enjoyable read though nothing really amazing don't give up don't make excuses use positive self talk know the difference between normal wear and tear you fight thru and an actual injury and so on As she occasionally acknowledges most of what happens in competition is dictated by your actual training and genetics if you slack in training but do mindfulness meditation imitate Deena Kastor by reminding yourself defne yourself today on the start line and commit to racing with a joyful smile and grateful attitudeyou'll still race poorly because your body isn't ready for itlots and lots of triathlon examples and many anecdotes from her own eventful career plus those of a few of her friends Colleen De Reuck comes up often than a random sampling of great endurance athletes would imply for instance Makes some effort to connect with regular people but occasionally lapses into assuming everyone is a pro detailed tips on how to lead your team of rehab people massage therapist chiro personal coach etc etc suggest a target audience with high SES and a lot of time to devote to their sport

    This book was recommended by my coach when I asked about a good read on developing mental toughness Written by a professional athlete for athletes and weekend warriors alike this book offers a true wealth of hands on practices of how to set and achieve your sports goals how to dream big without setting yourself up for disaster how to deal with setbacks restlessness of a taper finding meaning and purpose when going gets tough and many other big and small issues that every athlete encounters and deals with in the course of his or her sports life A must read for all sports enthusiasts

    I really like the book Don’t give up No excuses Don’t blame others Positive mantras Do your bestThe author is a world class triathlete and Runner I listened to the audio version of this book and thought it was read well by the author You may find for much of the book you’re thinking I knew that Every time it encourages better thinking it helps you improve performance Some may say it’s about positive thinking than mental toughness Zeiger would say accept the difficult issue and continue to give best effort Sometimes it is hard to stay focused when trouble occurs

    Lots of good advice from someone who has been both near the top of the endurance sports world as well as the absolute bottom after a horrific bike crash and also brings a coaching perspective The chapters cover topics like Proper Goal Setting Keeping it Fun Building Your Team Improving Motivation etc I found a lot of it very helpful and honestly I probably need to read it again at this point

  7. Mark Mark says:

    This is an outstanding book for athletes regardless of level of activitycompetition for how to mentally and physically deal with the entire process outside of trainingcompetition and inside of it I found uite a few of the mental aspects to be very helpful for non athletic parts of my life including work or any other challenge Well written and very instructive

  8. Ashley McMullen Ashley McMullen says:

    This book provided some very useful tips for a new runner like myself At times it felt like she was talking directly to me and I appreciated the parts of the book that called for self evaluation I definitely think this book gave me key points to help build a stronger mind when it comes to endurance sports and I'm glad I read it

    More of an autobiography rather than a book to help the reader Make sure you read it for the right reason
