Generally, I like the shortness and simplicity. Harry Coen rated it liked it Nov 06, To Obree, there is a strong correlation between our mental approach and thinking in the right way and also our physical performance. But, you feel Obree only wanted to put in what worked for him.

You have another go at this 20 minute ride, but aim to improve on kbree previous performance. What is also very refreshing is the lack of any commercial taint, no marketing clap-trap just straightforward advice from a man who was driven to do the best he could and he beat them all despite the odds being stacked against him.

One of the most difficult things I found in the book was the length of time Obree was willing to devote to recovery.

Obree even suggests that to get to the peak of your form, you have to be willing to sacrifice a program of racing every weekend as this seven day race cycle can interfere in your optimal training program.
