(Highly) Recommended Reading

 

How Bad Do You Want It by Matt Fitzgerald.

I've been reading this book about the importance of "mental fitness" to the success of an endurance athlete.  The book talks about how one's mindset can affect their performance in races, and offers strategies to improve one's mental approach to racing.  I highly recommend reading it, as it has a direct correlation to what we are trying to accomplish as competitive distance runners.  Below are links to a preview of the introduction, and a preview of one of the chapters.
