Well, Dirtsqueezer, I don't guess this falls into the entertainment reading category you seem to be looking for, but I will mention it anyway because I am impressed. At a local racer's suggestion I bought Friel's "Cyclists Training Bible". It presents one of the most systematic, easy to follow, processes for designing a training program that I have seen. It is actually written for racers with 2-3 years of experience, but even as a new cyclist racing wannabe, I can see how I can benefit from it, just at a very modest level. I feel like I have direction to help me get to a point where I will be ready to join a club and maybe at least keep up with some of the riders on training rides.
I also just got in the mail today the Lance Armstrong/Chris Carmichel 7-week training book. Someone recommended it also. Can't comment yet, though.
If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!
