I have been looking out for some serious motivational stuff in recent weeks, and finally decided to take a plunge into some of the stuff which I have been putting down for a long time. I ordered the following books online from indiaplaza.in (which I find to be the most reasonable online book store in India, others being firstandsecond.com, flipkart.com):
The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (Robin Sharma)
Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance (Pirsig Robert)
Greatness Guide (Robin Sharma)
Greatness Guide 2 (Robin Sharma)
I also subscribed to the Runners’s World Magazine for an year (its the 4th largest selling magazine in the world, and #1 in sports, as per Amazon). The US/Canada rates are extremely low at a US dollar apiece, but its much higher for international audience). That should really keep up my spirits through the year, particularly in the non-season months.
Recently finished with Haruki Murakami’s What I talk about when I talk about Running , a sort of log of Murakami’s training for some marathons, an ultra, and triathlons, including the original running course from Athens to a place called Marathon in Greece.
