30 Bananas a Day!

Hi,
So I've been reading quite a lot of books on nutrition, including fit for life, 80/10/10 diet and The China Study and think I've got the nutrition thing figured out ;)

What I've come to realise is that I am completely ignorant when it comes to sports. I do yoga and go jogging sometimes, but really, I don't know a thing when it comes to working out. I'd really like to buy a couple of books on sports. How it works, what you should be doing, what is healthiest, how much cardio/strength training. Kind of like the nutrition books I've been reading, just in sports version:)

Any book recommendations?

Born To Run is a great read!  I never appreciated running until I read it, and I learned about foot health and barefoot running and lots of other stuff too! :)

Nice! I've been enjoying runnung a lot the past couple of weeks, so I think that should be really interesting:)
But I was also looking for a book about how to optimally plan an excercise schedule; how much cardio vs. how much strength. Also coming from a more scientific and natural perspective, like the 80/10/10 diet. I've been to the library but most books you find there will be like : "Why you should do HIIT", "lose weight fast" "why you should start yoga" "the ultimate bikini body program", I feel like everyone is just trying to sell their programms. But I want to actually LEARN something about sports. I think that's why I've never really gotten into it. One person says this, the other says, no, do that, and I get so confused, I just give it up all together. I've been to a personal trainer but he's also very onesided, only into building muscle and lifting weights.

Some good book recommendations and writing here on body building.

Good thread here on yoga.

Good thread here on biking.
