Horrible waste of time Jan. 7 2012
By knapperoo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i downloaded this book to my kindle and was EXTREMELY disappointed. To be fair, I only read the first quarter of the book, but it was so ridiculously full of hot air that I couldn't continue reading. The list of excuses that people make to avoid training for a marathon aren't even realistic - "running gear is too complicated" ?!?!?? "I have nothing to talk about with a training partner" !??!? "I am not good at registering in time for races"... The entire beginning of this book is written as though it was just ideas off the top of his head to fill pages. I couldn't even find one sentence of value. If it wasn't digital, i would have burnt this book.

Weak sauce April 12 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a marathoner hoping to get something new out of this book, and it disappointed me. Anyone who has trained for any period of time has likely already come up with these "tricks" already and very little (nothing) was new or useful.

Mental Tricks for Endurance Runners Guide April 9 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have always entered and completed running events (occasionally with a walking portion during the run), but this guide could be quite useful for my running mindset.

helpful but redundant Feb. 10 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This ebook has helpful advice but repeats itself a lot, over and over and over again. It could have used editing to pare it down.

A very simple and positive, but forgotten jewel - your brain!! Jan. 22 2012
By J. McClung - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have completed 29 consecutive marathons and I wish this book had been around when I did my first marathon! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to dive into a half or full marathon or even a 5k or 10k for someone who has never exercised before and wants to take the mystery out of those sports. Physically, everyone can finish a 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon or even an ultra-distance event. No one says you have to do it in world-record pace. It is the mental aspect of the sports that causes many to succumb to defeat or what they think is failure, which it is not! Dr. Mahoney breaks down the vast stigma and mystery of endurance sports into small easy to understand tidbits of information that anyone can grasp and put to good use. One of the hardest thing to any sport is telling yourself "I can do this!" Great Book!!
