Hey ladies!

I'm looking for some good reads on being mentally tough and overcoming what life can throw at you in order to be great in training and competitions.

Any ideas....links, book titles, etc.....post on up!

Thanks!
Angela

I've been reading:

If you're just looking for one to go with for now, I'd go with The New Toughness Training one, but they're both really good.

Do you think it's helped you?  I got it from the library last week, based on this thread, but of course, it's too soon to tell for me.  I'm only on Chapter 3.
