Average to Epic is an integrated guide for helping men and women transform their lives through endurance sports. Be it riding a bike 100 miles, running a marathon, or completing long-course triathlons, this book provides the resources, practical tips, planning, and motivation for the average person to take on epic athletic challenges. It covers endurance road biking, endurance mountain biking, long-distance running, and triathlons. Many middle-aged people want to drastically improve their fitness and overall wellness. Taking that first step is often difficult. Motivation is hard because of time commitments and lack of information, guidance, and experience in endurance sports. Average to Epic provides motivation by demystifying the world of endurance sports and helping the reader take the first steps in getting into one of these sports and training for an epic event. It guides the aspiring triathlete through the murky waters of their first triathlon as they work toward a half Iron (70.3) or Ironman; takes the non-runner or 5K weekend warrior through the details of good running form on their way to completing their first marathon; and explains the world of cycling to encourage the reader to ride 100 miles on a bike. In doing so, this book helps the reader achieve a broader and more important goal: lifelong fitness.

A unique fitness program from a highly respected spiritual leader that blends physical and spiritual practice for everyone - regardless of age, spiritual background, or ability - to great benefits for both body and soul. As a Tibetan lama and leader of Shambhala (an international community of 165 meditation centers), Sakyong Mipham has found physical activity to be essential for spiritual well-being. He's been trained in horsemanship and martial arts but has a special love for running. Here he incorporates his spiritual practice with running, presenting basic meditation instruction and fundamental principles he has developed. Even though both activities can be complicated, the lessons here are simple and designed to show how the melding of internal practice with physical movement can be used by anyone - regardless of age, spiritual background, or ability - to benefit body and soul.

The first thing to remember about this program, it is not just a book, but a complete course in mind training. To take this course, the person must have an open mind and a huge desire for success. Without desire to be the best you can be in the game of golf, this course is not for you. This course teaches the basic principles over and over with exercises in every chapter. This is not only a course, but a players diary of their goals, practice techniques, on course mental goals during competition. Every player that completes this course will automatically cut 8 to 10 strokes off their game. It is a must you follow each chapter and the exercises for success. This course will repeat until each player understands. The course teaches a player who they really are, controls anger, develops honesty, trust, and confidence. Why spend thousand of dollars on equipment and lessons before we train the mind first? We are teaching backwards the principles of true golf. Yes, there are a lot of great golfers coming up, but each one is understanding the mental side first, starting with Tiger Woods at a very early age. The competition is greater, courses are longer, and thousands of young golfers coming on the seen. Why wait, this is the first and only mental training complete course. Remember, this is not just a book! Time to take charge of your game now. Consider the price of a golf lesson? This course is much more valuable at the same price. You will not be dissappointed.

The world's leading endurance athletes are not only some of the fittest people on the planet, they are also among the toughest mentally. To train and race at the highest level of competition over hundreds ? and sometimes thousands ? of miles takes preparation, dedication and the ability to push the body and mind beyond conventional limits. Ultra Performance offers an insight into the psychology of these athletes. Having interviewed fourteen ultra athletes, Paul Moore distils the dynamics of the mental toughness they required ? the motivation, focus and ability to keep the mind positive deep in the heart of fatigue. What did it take, for instance, for Rachel Cadman to 'eat the elephant' of the Arch to Arc (running from London to Dover, swimming the Channel, then cycling to Paris)? And to win? That takes steeliness beyond all mere effort, pushing through and improvising when necessary. The stories of these hard-fought wins feature strongly in the contributions from Brett Sutton, world-renowned triathlon coach, and Craig Alexander, one of the greatest athletes in the history of Ironman. Others, like Dee Cafari, the first woman to circumnavigate the world solo in both directions, required the resilience to overcome challenges they had set themselves. With working examples of the implementation of their mental strategies, Ultra Performance not only gives an insight into the toughest moments these professional athletes have ever faced, but also offers advice to readers on how they can adapt and employ these techniques for themselves, often to the non-sporting pursuits of everyday life.
