This book offers good advice for someone who has little knowledge about triathlons.The beginning even offers encouragement for choosing to train for one.My husband felt the book was geared more toward women athletes, but he still read it.Overall, a good starting point.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good training log!
Plenty of info on training. Lots of space to record training events. I'd love to see space where one can record blood analysis, weight, max effort data, etc.

3-0 out of 5 stars TriLog is not international
Handy book and quite universal in that the pages are undated, but most of the measurements are in US measurements. Quite annoying for the rest of the word - the pace charts would be wonderful if they were in km and not in miles.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's an okay start
It doesn't have everything I want in it. The log is really basic. It has three lines, one for running, one for swimming (in yards-I count in meters), and one for biking...for each day. I really would like more space to write, more guiding questions about the day (e.g. Weather, temp., time of day), a space for cross-training (e.g. elliptical, weights), space for calories in and out, weight, and space for split times. If I ran or biked twice in one day, there is only one small space for miles/time. But again, I guess since it's my first tri, it's better than writing on pieces of scratch paper as I was doing before.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good resource
I like it better than the online site I was using, because there is more space for notes.Wish there were lines for general notes not pertaining to a specific workout, but there's space to write in the margins.Very easy to use & flexible.No wasted space.Good tips.

4-0 out of 5 stars my favorite log
I'm in my 4th season of triathlon (go SeaTri!) about to do my first marathon. I've tried other logs with more boxes to fill in but they're too customized to someone else, I like that this is a pretty unstructured format. I tried making my own but I made it 8.5x11 and it was too unweildy, so I've come back to this log again and I actually use it.I like the week totals, it's very satisfying to see my marathon training milage ramp up. In the review section I put reminders like gear I need to replace or drinks that did or didn't work for me. I follow their recommendation of drawing a diagonal line across days I didn't work out and it gives a good quick sense of whether or not I'm slacking.My biggest drawback is I have messy handwriting (keyboard junkie ;-) so I have trouble staying between the small lines.I could go digital, but I like that this can kick around in my closet by my gear. ...

Product Description
Purchase includes free access to book updates online and a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: Conrad Stoltz (born October 23, 1973) is an athlete from South Africa. He competes in triathlons and is triple World Champion of the XTERRA series of off-road triathlon races. Born in Lydenburg (in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa) he now calls Stellenbosch (near the city of Cape Town), South Africa his hometown while he is based in Bend, Oregon, when competing in the United States. Stoltz started competing in the multi-sport disciplines of duathlon and triathlon through his involvement in cycling. He is most famous for his exploits in the XTERRA series of off-road triathlons where he claimed the World Championship in his rookie season (starting the season without sponsorship) in 2001 and successfully defended it the following year. It is also in this series that he earned the nickname "Caveman" in all likelihood due to a combination of his large stature - he is 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) tall and weighs between 176 lb (80 kg) and 180 lb (82 kg) - and his speed on downhill sections of the mountain biking leg. He recorded the fastest time in the cycling leg of the first ever Olympic triathlon at the 2000 Summer Olympics and usually the mountain biking leg is also his strongest of the three legs (due to his cycling background) that make up an off-road triathlon (the other two being swimming and trail running). Stoltz finished 7th in the 2005 World Championship event held on his 32nd birthday on October 23, 2005 in Maui, Hawaii. After an injury-ridden 2006 season, Stoltz again asserted his dominance in the XTERRA US Championship series by winning four of five races, including the final, to be crowned 2007 US Pro champion. He then completed the season by also winning the World Championship. Conrad has collaborated with Avia on Avi Stoltz off-road... More: http://booksllc.net/?id=1755735 ... Read more

Product Description
Chapters: Fernando González, Nicolás Massú. Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 27. Not illustrated. Free updates online. Purchase includes a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: Fernando Francisco González Ciuffardi (born July 29, 1980) is a professional tennis player from Chile. He is known for having one of the hardest hitting forehands on the circuit. In Spanish he is called El bombardero de La Reina ("The La Reina bomber") and Mano de Piedra ("Stone Hand"). The English-language media has labeled him "Gonzo." González is one of the few active players to have reached at least the quarter-final round of all four Grand Slam tournaments. He played his first major final at the 2007 Australian Open, losing to top-ranked Roger Federer. He is the fourth male tennis player in history to have won each Olympic medal (gold in doubles and bronze in singles at Athens 2004, and silver in singles at Beijing 2008). Throughout his career, he has defeated many former number-one players, including Lleyton Hewitt, Andre Agassi, Roger Federer (all while they held the top spot), Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Carlos Moyà, Gustavo Kuerten, Marat Safin and Pete Sampras. González has qualified twice for the year-end Masters Cup event and was runner-up at two Masters Series tournaments. He is arguably known as Chile's best tennis player of the 2000s. At age four, González spent his time playing both soccer and tennis. His father, who was an amateur tennis player since his 20s, was able to convince his son to opt for tennis over soccer. He began playing tennis at the age of six. He moved in with his family to the La Reina commune in eastern Santiago, where he practiced with his coach Claudio González (no relation) at the Club La Reina, three times a week. In 1988, at age eight, González and his father spent a month and a half in the United States, tra...More: http://booksllc.net/?id=498335 ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Mind Gym
This a well written, concise look into a gammut of psychological skills related to sport performance. It is also a series of short stories from the author's career as a professional sport psychologist. It is an easy read and well done. What it is NOT is an introduction to sport psychology or a book that can help someone learn sport psychology unless they are already familiar with the topic. Good book, I liked it very much; but not a book from which one can learn sport psychology. It is a collection of stories and within each story there is a skill to be learned.

1-0 out of 5 stars No depth at all
The author starts by stating how important psychology for sports is. It is.
After this promising start, however, we are presented with chapter after chapter of - well, nothing.
He states something obvious like "belive in yourself" and underlines this with some quotes and success stories from profs.
Great. This does not help at all. I already knew that I need confidence to excel.
No "how to", no in depth tipps, nothing usefull at all :-(

5-0 out of 5 stars A life changing book
I credit this book for changing the direction of my life.I found it to be a powerful tool in changing the way I view the world.I have given out 15 copies to friends, associates and players.If you really take the information in this book to heart it can help you accomplish great things in your life.The lessons learned in this book apply not only to sports but also to life in general.This book really teaches you the power of your own mind and will.I strongly suggest this book to anyone not just athletes.

5-0 out of 5 stars For my preteen, teenager and me
"Stinkin' thinkin'." You know just what I'm talking about. For me, it would mean walking onto the tennis court thinking I didn't have a shot to win. Or my sons walking to the pitchers mound thinking "this guy's going to jack me." But for those of you who have quit believing, I have a solution - read a book.

I ordered a couple of books on mental toughness, not for myself because I am, but for the boys to read. One of them is Mind Gym: An Athlete's Guide to Inner Excellence. I had them both read the first four chapters last night, and I won't soon forget their response: "It's the best book I've ever read" - hearty words from a 12 and 13-year old. Sometimes as parents we don't know the right words to impart to our kids, or maybe because we're parents we're just heard less...So I don't know that these books will solve their woes of late on the field, but I do know that they're paying attention to the fact that sports are not just physical tests because until the head is right, the body never will be.
