Re Training Books
Gday I live in a little country town in aus and do not have any way of getting a personal trainer I train myself doing 50ks a day six days a week This takes me anywhere between 1hr 45min to 2hr 10 depending on weather and if i go the hilly way or flat I have been doing this for 18mths and have gone from 137kilos to 97 kilos anyway I can not get anywhere near the speeds some of you talk about . So i was just wondering if there are any good books on training i can get that can help me pick up my speed .
