This book review is for: IRONSTRUCK … The Ironman Triathlon Journey
I love this bookI’ve had it (and a few other Ironman books) for a few months and only picked it up to read in the last couple of weeks. Wow, what a fabulous book. Ray really gets into the soul of Ironman racing and it’s an absolute must for anybody embarking on their first ironman journey and equally for those contemplating the long training journey, whether it’s this year, next year or at some point in their life. It’s inspirational and I found myself reading through misty eyes as I could relate to the pain and joy of each step of the journey. The “Do’s and Don’ts” are excellent, the helpful insight to the swim and the inspiring “Ironman Bubble” will give any ironman novice that extra bit of confidence to realise their dream. It’s my first ironman this year; I’ll be racing in Switzerland in July – this book will accompany me everywhere over the next few weeks and will be my bible right up until Race Morning. A wonderful book. An absolute MUST BUY for the novice and seasoned Ironman athlete everywhere.
