How to reach the top in sports
Recently, a good motivating book for athletes has appeared, which not only contains a lot of useful tips that can be easily applied in any sport, but also written in an interesting artistic manner. This is a book about the life of the legendary athlete Chris McCormack, a multiple winner of triathlon competitions (swimming – 3.86 km, cycling – 180 km and marathon running – 42.195 km).
The book “I’m here to win” not only tells about trainings and competitions, but presents the whole story of Chris coming to youth in sports, then studying and not interesting, though well-paid work, which he was so unbearable that He decides on the most difficult and important step in his life. Chris sells all his belongings and for the money he flies from Australia to Europe for the sake of his dream: to live in sports and see the world. And this is despite the fact that nobody believes in the expediency of such a step and does not support people close to him. But thanks to his faith and purposefulness, he gained freedom, his dream and devoted his life to his beloved work.
“Dream, believe, succeed.”
Reading the book, you will plunge into the world of triathlon, feel its nuances and learn about the many important points thanks to which the best triathletes come first to the finish line at a very difficult distance. Stories about competitions and training are intertwined with interesting moments from life, written easily and with humor, from which it is hard to break away from reading.
A great book for athletes of any sport: it explains how to overcome yourself, how to stay in great shape for a long time, how to prepare for a competition, how not to give up in the most difficult moments of a competition, etc. Ultimately, the reader will receive a lot of tips for training and passing competitions.
It is worth noting that the book was written by an athlete who is over 35 years old, and he continues to be one of the best in the world in triathlon: swimming, cycling and running, where strength, speed and endurance are very important. And even the best among young athletes in their best sports years can not beat him.
In his book, Chris also shares some of the secrets associated with the training process, nutrition during the race and maintaining a supply of fluid in the body. It is unlikely that such knowledge can be gathered somewhere else. It is this, together with a huge number of stories about mental strategies to achieve success that turns the book into an ideal reading for every person who aspires to raise his sporting achievements and life in general to a new level.
“There are no secrets in the life of a triathlete. What I did, everyone could do. The formula is simple: passion, a sense of duty, repetition, a lot of hard work and unwillingness to give up. I did not know anything about the methods of professional coaching work. I just set a certain schedule for myself and began to stick to it. There are no obstacles for you to do the same. ”
Great athletes are always adapting and looking for ways to surprise themselves and their bodies as well as those around them. But if you are a triathlete who has successfully completed the season, and someone will tell you that next season you need to change something, you will probably say: “Wait, my friend, we had a great season, why change something? “However, just as your body gets used to the usual exercises, your opponents get used to your racing tactics.” If they know exactly what you will do in each race, then sooner or later they will “hack” your strategy and defeat you … even if you are the strongest of the participants.
So, dear readers, in front of you is a book that serves as an excellent incentive to get up from the couch and start playing sports.
