HOW TO BE AN IRONMAN

In April 2016, Dr. Nasser Al-Mohannadi became one of the first Qataris ever to complete a full Ironman race. He swam 3.8km, biked 180km and ran 42.2km on one of the most difficult Ironman courses in the world. It was the fulfilment of a childhood dream and the climax of 28 years of preparation and training. In this book, Al-Mohannadi shows how he overcame childhood fears, cultural misunderstanding, and physical injuries to reach his goal. Through careful planning, persistence and learning through mistakes, he achieved what seemed impossible.
