Adapt or Die: Shot at the Title (or) Adapting a Title

It is just like I was as a kid, sitting before the test, remembering a passage read, and looking at multiple choice picks for what the title of the passage in the test question should have been…over thought it then, and…

Flashback to now.

What in the world do I name this book?

And is it worth re-titling?

Is it as simple as republishing a new edition with a different title?

And then, what do I do with the blog?

Maybe while I figure all of this out, I’ll get my camera fixed so I can post new visual content too. Can’t take good shots with what I’ve got.

All these questions and more, on deck.

Practical Training Takeaway: About Workout Books and Swimming for Core with Cardio-Respiratory and Recovery Benefits Included

When I bought the book by fellow blogger and authors Reeves, Paglini, et al. Triathletes Swim First: 100+ Beginning Swim Workouts for Triathletes, I had planned at first to buy a hard copy.

I changed my mind and downloaded the e-book instead. The reason: I use the book by these athletes for one of many options to train the core muscles, and for mobility training of all muscle groups with cardio, breathing, recovery, and buoyancy benefits included.

Takeway Training Tip: With the book on my desktop, I can print-off one of the workouts from one or more pages, and bring it with me to the pool for guidance.

This is also true for all of those fitness, training, and health books that tend to get lost on your bookshelves with workouts, pictorial how-to sequences, and instructive tips in them. If you buy them in e-book form, you can easily print-off the pages with the content you want to work on, and take them with you.

You can even laminate them, create a card folio, and re-use them to save paper, and increase your fluency in variety training.

This is very much a simple way to put all of those sport, training, and fitness books to good use in your adaptive training life.

It also helps the athlete or wellness author to sell an e-book instead of a hard copy, as there is less production expense. Here, the green of the trees and the green of author profits come together.
