Finally, I recommend your own training journal – where you keep track of emotions, thoughts and not just heart rate and outcomes.

*Many of these references may seem out of date. However, they are some of the classics in the field. I have not seen books published more recently that come close to the quality of these references. Thus, I suggest that you not let the publication date be an obstacle to your reviewing and ultimately reading them.
