IRONWOMEN: Tiffany & 40 female IRONMAN (Switzerland & UK) finishers share their emotional, entertaining & inspiring Ironwomen journeys (English Edition) Reviews
Ein Ziel setzen (das ist der erste Sieg), loslegen ohne die perfekte Ausrüstung, mit Freundinnen trainieren, hart daran arbeiten, Trainingspläne und wie man deren Umsetzung anpasst, Unterstützung suchen und annehmen, mit Ängsten umgehen (zum Beispiel beim Schwimmen im aufgewühltem Meer), Misserfolge in Lehrstücke integrieren, Spass haben, ... Als Bonus gibt es zu jedem Kapitel je einen Gold-, Silber- und Bronze-Tipp.Weit motivierender und nützlicher als ein Buch eines erfolgreichen Triathlon-Profis ist dieser Einblick in die Welt der Tri-Sisters. Auch in viele andere Aspekte des Lebens übertragbar.
This book is a lot more than just a practical guide. The author easily combines practical tips with her own inspirational journey.Once you start reading you do not want to put the book down and you might even start to consider doing a triathlon yourself.....The book is also a great read when you are not interested in doing a triathlon yourself. It is for everybody who wants to learn about determination, focus, and achieving things you thought you were not capable of.It leaves you in awe of the author. Wanting to be her.....
Great book about Tiffany‘s journey to become an Ironwoman: Authentic, honest and quite entertaining. And there is plenty to learn from the feedback of other female triathletes which Tiffany collected and presents in an interesting and easy to read fashion.
If you've ever wondered how or why people achieve what you think is impossible, read this. You don't have to be an Ironman/woman to learn from the lessons of motivation, perseverance, and living well.If you think your best days are behind you, and you're too old to start something, this makes you pack your excuses and begin.My favourite part of this book is Tiffany's story. But this isn't just a training journal, it's her personal life story, from the death of her father aged just 17 to the loss of her twins when 6 months pregnant, from the UK to the Netherlands, to the US, Spain, and Switzerland. It's about finding strength within you and making the most of each day.And for those of you who are serious athletes, or dream of moving up from 5K to a half marathon or more, or for those who are thinking of a tri, or how to prepare for an ironman, the latter part of this book is packed with top tips from dozens of female athletes who've been there and done that.What I really like about this is the fact that it acknowledges our humanity. You may have a plan, but when life throws you a bag of lemons, you better know how to make lemonade. Acknowledging your weaknesses and overcoming them or adapting to them is the key to having it all according to Tiffany.On a personal note, I’ve known Tiffany since she moved to Switzerland and always wondered how she does it all. Now I know: a combination of planning with a clear goal in mind, continual improvement, and learning to be kind to yourself. We can all learn from that...An inspiring story from an inspiring woman.
Truly amazing! A remarkable journey!
