Aus einem Funken ein richtiges Lauf-Feuer entfachen - das schaffen Peter Gottwald und Lars Kreiselmeier mit ihrem Buch Start Running! Das diffuse Gefühl, sich bewegen zu müssen, verwandeln die Autoren und Lauf-Coaches in die Lust am Laufen und Unterwegssein. Die zyklische Bewegung des Laufens mag auf Außenstehende monoton wirken. Doch gerade dieses Element verursacht die meditative und kontemplative Wirkung des Sports - der perfekte Ausgleich zum oft stressigen Alltag. In Start Running! haben der Marathon-Läufer Peter M. Gottwald und der Sportwissenschaftler Lars Kreiselmeier ein komplettes Starter-Paket zusammengetragen, das Spaß macht und gleichzeitig äußerst effizient ist. Mit einem motivierenden Trainingsplan wird die Überwindung des inneren Schweinehundes spielend einfach. Das Laufen wird so zu einem leidenschaftlichen Projekt und verbessert neben der Ausdauer auch Kraft und Beweglichkeit. Die Autoren helfen bei der Auswahl der richtigen Kleidung und führen in langsamen Schritten an Mobilisierung, Kräftigungs- und Dehnübungen heran. Durch die Kapitel zu Laufstil und Tempogefühl gelingt ein individuelles Training und mit den richtigen Vorkehrungen übt es sich auch bei Hitze und Kälte völlig unproblematisch. Um das Training abzurunden, wird außerdem ein Augenmerk auf die Ernährung gelegt. So purzelt auch das ein oder andere Kilo und am Ende nähert sich vielleicht sogar der erste Wettkampf! Start Running! enthält Trainingspläne mit definierten Zielen, die das Laufen zum Ritual und festen Bestandteil des Alltags werden lassen. Ein Wochenprotokoll-Vordruck hilft dabei, strukturiert durch die Woche zu laufen. Peter M. Gottwald ist Läufer mit Marathon-Erfahrung und Inhaber von Smart-Running in München, einem der führenden Anbieter für professionelles Lauftraining. Zusammen mit seinem Partner, Sportwissenschaftler Lars Kreiselmeier, betreut er als Coaching-Profi Firmen-Lauftrainings, z.B. für BMW, Deutsche Bahn, LBS und Sony Music.

A quest novel and a historical tour de force, The Steady Running of the Hour unravels a tale of passion, legacy, and courage reaching across the 20th century. In 1924, the English mountaineer Ashley Walsingham dies attempting to summit Mount Everest, leaving his fortune to his former lover, Imogen Soames-Andersson - whom he has not seen in seven years. Ashley´s solicitors search in vain for Imogen, but the estate remains unclaimed. Nearly 80 years later, new information leads the same law firm to Tristan Campbell, a young American who could be the estate´s rightful heir. If Tristan can prove he is Imogen´s descendant, the inheritance will be his. But with only weeks before Ashley´s trust expires, Tristan must hurry to find the evidence he needs. From London archives to Somme battlefields to the Eastfjords of Iceland, Tristan races to piece together the story behind the unclaimed riches: A reckless love affair pursued only days before Ashley´s deployment to the Western Front; a desperate trench battle fought by soldiers whose hope is survival rather than victory; an expedition to the uncharted heights of the world´s tallest mountain. Following a trail of evidence that stretches to the far edge of Europe, Tristan becomes consumed by Ashley and Imogen´s story. But as he draws close to the truth, Tristan realizes he may be seeking something more than an unclaimed fortune. The Steady Running of the Hour announces the arrival of a stunningly talented author. Justin Go´s novel is heartrending, transporting, and utterly compelling. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve West. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/006679/bk_sans_006679_sample.mp3.

The groundbreaking follow-up to the international best seller - a hands-on guide to putting McKinsey techniques to work in your organization. McKinsey & Company is the most respected and most secretive consulting firm in the world, and business listeners just can´t seem to get enough of all things McKinsey. Now, hot on the heels of his acclaimed international best seller The McKinsey Way, Ethan Rasiel brings listeners a powerful new guide to putting McKinsey concepts and skills into action: The McKinsey Mind. While the first book used case studies and anecdotes from former and current McKinseyites to describe how ´´the firm´´ solves the thorniest business problems of their A-list clients, The McKinsey Mind goes a giant step further. It explains, step-by-step, how to use McKinsey tools, techniques, and strategies to solve an array of core business problems and to make any business venture more successful. Designed to work as a stand-alone guide or together with The McKinsey Way, The McKinsey Mind follows the same critically acclaimed style and format as its predecessor. In this book authors Rasiel and Friga expand upon the lessons found in The McKinsey Way with real-world examples, parables, and easy-to-do exercises designed to get listeners up and running. 1.

When you have a fear of getting hurt, you develop a habit of running away from things you can´t control. But what happens when the thing with the highest risk is the one that can give you the most pleasure? Ali is a secretary in a small law firm, responsible, serious and beautiful, but very reserved and insecure of herself. She spends her days burdening herself with work to keep her mind off of the unhappiness of her life, because even when you have everything lined up just right, life without some excitement is still not a life you want. The safe, plain colored and boring life Ali created for herself is going to change when a splash of excitement refuses to go away without a fight, and the only thing she has to do is stop running away.... 1.
