Winning Ways:In search of your best performance. by Rudi Webster 1984.
This is the best book I have read regarding mental application for racing and training. I used this book a lot when I was first trying to break 3 hours for the Marathon.
Really great read.
MY LIFE ON THE RUN by Bart Yasso.2008
Very good read. Chief running officer for Runner`s World. Apparently he has run over 1000 races (well haven`t we all Juergen?!). He invented the Yasso 800s.
Cost me about 1800 yen. Well worth the money.
I have just purchased a second hand copy of `The loneliness of the Long distance runner` by Alan Sillitoe.
Very cheap from second hand place here in Tokyo. I have read many times but its worth a second (or fifth) read. An oldie but a goodie. 1959.
