Notice a trend toward recovery? I’ve alway been able to put down power and get progressively faster, I don’t think I’ve ever really plateaued, thats simply because I always seem to get hurt. I’m trying very hard to get smarter about it and prevent it. When I can’t, I am learning to get back as fast as possible.
Just my .02, YMMV, past performance is no guarantee of future gains.
It might not make you faster but this book will almost certainly make you re-evaluate your approach to a crucial yet often overlooked aspect of recovery: sleep. A fascinating, insightful, erudite and highly readable account of everything to do with sleep. Read it and sleep . Highly recommended.
I started “How Bad do you want it”, and I am really disappointed. I do think a lot of info there is helpful, but the story telling style is really annoying. I mean, each chapter principle can be summed up in 3 pages. But no info on how to put it in application.
Some people find the “inspirational” stories helpful for motivation, like the video with Justin Rossi, or the never ending stories of this book (this guy being one stride in front of the other and then the other fought back and was at the front, but then again the other wanted it more badly and so on). But for me, it is really annoying, and sounds like motivational BS.
The Brave Athlete on the other Hand, has been a great read with a lot of practicality in it. I can only recommend it.
