Mark Allen's Total Triathlete
"Unless you test yourself, you stagnate. Unless you try to go way beyond what you've been able to do before, you won't develop and grow. When you go for it 100 percent, when you don't have that fear of 'what if I fail,' that's when you learn. That's when you're really living." -- Mark Allen Mark Allen, world-class triathlete and five-time winner of the Nice World Championships, is regarded by many as the reigning king of triathlons. Now, for the first time, Allen reveals the training secrets and mental strategies that have made him a champion. In this intimate look at the life of a professional triathlete, Allen details the demanding mental and physical preparation it takes to become a champion, the friendships, the psych-outs, and the rivalries among the top competitors in the sport today. Complete with more than 75 personal and action photographs, a dramatic day-by-day account of the week before the Ironman Triathlon, and his personalized training program, Mark Allen's Total Triathlete will inspire both the amateur and the seasoned athlete.
