The topics never drag on but are all very relevant and touching on awesome tips that I have not heard before in every other book. Krissy is extremely realistic about her suggestions and training plans, knowing that we are not all professional athletes and have jobs, family and other hobbies that fill our days. I love reading a section that brings up excellent points about being a female athlete, especially one that trains with both women and men. (Because that does change the dynamic.) And Krissy is right on, even this chapter would be beneficial for a man to read up on too. Especially one training, racing or in a relationship with a female athlete.
Lots of awesome workout suggestions and documents. The back section of the book really helped me wrap my brain around all of the layers of preparing for an ultra! There are so many elements I did not consider or felt too overwhelmed to begin testing out or planning. (A race budget chart was brilliant and quite eye opening!)
So glad Krissy Moehl decided to write this fab book and become my imaginary ultra coach. Thank you Krissy!!
