What are your favorite triathlon/endurance related book(s)?

Metabolic Efficiency by Bob Seebohar and Paleo Diet for Athletes. [Laura Bergmann, 30, Ranson, WV]   I just finished reading Which Comes First, Cardio or Weights by Alex Hutchinson. The book was great! It covered all the fitness myths, training truths and other surprising discoveries from exercise science literature reviews. I am looking forward to reading Chrissie Wellingtons biography when that comes out this spring. [Liz Baugher, 23, College Station, TX]   This year I listened to 25 triathlon books on my Kindle while driving my truck. Among my favorites are: Iron Heart: The True Story Of How I Came Back From The Dead (about Brian Boyles) and In A Single Bound: Losing My Leg, Finding Myself, and Training for Life (about Sarah Reinertsen). [Siphiwe Baleka, 40, Muncie, IN]   It’s hard to pick, there are so many books that I love! My top books would include Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run: My Triathlon Journey from Common Man to Ironman by Andy Holgate, the oldie but goodie, The Competitive Runner’s Handbook by Robert Glover, the Elements of Effort: Reflections on the Art and Science of Running by John Jerome, and Running on Empty by Marshall Ulrich. [Cortney Martin, 45, Blacksburg, VA]  

  Favorite is a video, rather than a book - Endurance Films Athlete’s Guide to Yoga, since I have no balance and I can’t hold a position for very long, this video is perfect.  I get the stretches I need without the pain and possible injury of holding a pose for too long!  [Diane Camet, 41, San Diego, CA]   Born to Run, Becoming an Ironman, Ultramarathon Man.  [Nick Logan, 30, Norwalk, CT]
