Can anybody recommend a few good books about triathlons. Not looking for training books but something more in the in the vein of "Born to Run",
"Once A Runner" or "Not About the Bike".

Thanks

Triathlon Workout Planner - by John Mora

Swim, Bike, Run by Wes Hobson

Both are great reads as I annually re-read each one and learn some new things each time.

Whilst sort of on training I liked a book called "breakthrough triathlon training" - doesn't have workouts or anything like that in more about ways to train.

Thanks guys. The Breakthrough Triathlon Training seems interesting but I'm looking for something inspirational/entertaining - not a new workout.

Macca just put a book out, and I think there is one about racing Ironman called 17 Hours to Glory...but outside of that there isn't much.

Most of the "inspirational" books are still to be found surrounding the individual disciplines.

The Long Run by Matt Long. He's the new york fire fighter who got run over by a bus and impaled by his seat post but came back to finish a marathon and an Ironman.

There's "Iron Heart: The True Story of How I Came Back from the Dead". Amazing overcoming-the-odds story of a local MD high school student named Brian Boyle. You can get a synopsis of his story at his blog http://brianboyle.wordpress.com/biography/ and on Amazon.com at http://amzn.com/1602397716

If your training for an Ironman, read 'Becoming an Ironman' by K. Douglas Tom.
