Brilliant and Spot On
Strategic approach to triathlon
The Austrailian accent and sense of humor
Absolutely. It was good to hear a success story from someone who has personally applicable racing issues.
Leave your bias at the door. Macca's attitude and persona simply reflect a guy with focus, intent, and passioniate. The guy gets a bad rep for saying what most are too insecure to. It's not disrespect; it's brutal honesty. Respect that.
Yes. Explores the mindset and psychology of triathlon - how to train smarter not necessarily harder.
Macca. Inspiring & dedicated.
No. Needs to be reflected on.
I love to make my mind think and in totally new ways. In that way I can make my world in my minds eye bigger. Maybe I just need more space?
There are many skills that can be used in everyday life as well as in sports. But the most interesting thing is the view into a winning mindset and how Chris changes and adapts to keep peak performing.
Chris was the MAN! Because he accepts his shortcomings, uses them to his advantage and keep learning to KEEP peak performing!
How he adapts and overcome his limitations to win his big race in 2010.
There is not a part in the book that moved me but, the way he thinks - moves me!
A great book for professional athletes or anyone doing sports and wants to better them self. A good roll model of how to accept oneself and learn and develop.
Macca is a champ. 2 Ironman world Championships, Talks the talk but explains why..... hahah very funny at times.
Go Macca. Great read.
If you are an endurance athlete that listens to audiobooks while training, you may stop reading now and buy this audiobook. You will enjoy it.
already have, has great advice and provides a different way to think about the sport.

Something not sports related
It just came across as Macca loving himself at the expense of all others. He repeats himself a lot. I listened to this while I ran and found myself getting really annoyed and wanted it to be over. I was not inspired. I couldn't identify with him at all.
