Leap In

'Remarkable' Observer 'A joy to read' Daily Telegraph 'Soaringly beautiful' Sunday Times Magazine 'Genuine and persuasive' Guardian Alexandra Heminsley thought she could swim. She really did. It may have been because she could run. It may have been because she wanted to swim; or perhaps because she only ever did ten minutes of breaststroke at a time. But, as she learned one day while flailing around in the sea, she really couldn’t. Believing that a life lived fully isn’t one with the most money earned, the most stuff bought or the most races won, but one with the most experiences, experienced the most fully, she decided to conquer her fear of the water. From the ignominy of getting into a wetsuit to the triumph of swimming from Kefalonia to Ithaca, in becoming a swimmer, Alexandra learns to appreciate her body and still her mind. As it turns out, the water is never as frightening once you're in, and really, everything is better when you remember to exhale. What Hemmo's readers are saying: ‘This book is funny, engaging, entertaining, informative, suspenseful, motivating, and inspiring... I've never read anything quite like it’ – Nina on Goodreads, 5 stars ‘Just like Running Like a Girl, this was an absolute joy to read. A beautifully written story of swimming, family and being a woman’ – Violet on Amazon, 5 stars ‘Fantastic book... Entertaining – often laugh-out-loud funny – and full of really useful advice’ – J. Edwards on Amazon, 5 stars ‘A fabulous book that’s beautifully written’ – Nik on Goodreads, 5 stars ‘I can't recommend this book enough! I absolutely love Alexandra Heminsley's writing, her attitude towards exercise and her passion for swimming’ – Sarah on Goodreads, 5 stars ‘an inspirational and encouraging read’ – Stephanie on Goodreads, 5 stars ‘the author’s enthusiasm is contagious... one cannot help but yearn to join in. ... A thoroughly inspiring book with a likeable narrator unafraid to share her personal life’ – Eleanor on Goodreads, 5 stars ‘This is a delightful book, a pleasure to read... Unbelievably well written, it flows like the water she loves’ – Bobby on Amazon, 5 stars

Tricurious

Laura was a self-certified couch potato who, until a few years ago, could only run for a couple of minutes at a time, and couldn’t swim. She has now completed several marathons and is a committed triathlete. But Laura couldn’t have achieved what she has without the advice and support of her friend Katie. A life-long runner, fair-weather cyclist and born-again swimmer, Katie helped Laura through the ups and downs of training for a triathlon. As well as surmounting fears of failure and, more importantly, Laura’s fears of drowning in the swim start, their triathlon journey gave them the opportunity to push their limits and have fun along the way. Tricurious tells Laura’s and Katie’s story with energy and humour. Filled with anecdotes and advice about the trials and tribulations of preparing for a triathlon, this inspiring book will answer your questions and leave you curious to experience the joy (and pain) of swim, bike, run.

Swim Wild and Free

This is the ultimate practical guide to get you swimming outdoors, 365 days a year. Outdoor swimming can be enjoyed by everyone and we can all experience the physical and mental benefits it offers. The term outdoor swimming covers a range of activities from wild swimming (swimming in unsupervised, natural locations), open water swimming (often associated with races and events) to winter swimming and marathon swimming (long distance swimming challenges). The Outdoor Swimmer's Handbook provides the essential information every swimmer needs to know to embrace and enjoy all these activities as well as how to access the myriad health benefits of immersion in natural waters. Learn how to get started, what kit you will need, how to swim in different bodies of water (sea, river lake or pond?) and, most importantly, how to stay safe in the water. There is also dedicated material on cold-water swimming, to enable you to continue swimming in the colder months, which many people say is the best time of year for outdoor swimming. For those wanting to take things further, there is information on swimming adventures plus advice on how to become a stronger swimmer and how to train for your next swimming challenge. As well as a how-to guide, this book is also a celebration of the joy of outdoor swimming and the wonderful benefits it has for your health and well-being. You will find case studies from people with a wide range of backgrounds who have embraced the outdoor swimming lifestyle, including people living with physical disabilities and mental health challenges, and look at the difference it has made to their lives.

Average to Epic is an integrated guide for helping men and women transform their lives through endurance sports.

It covers endurance road biking, endurance mountain biking, long-distance running, and triathlons. Many middle-aged people want to drastically improve their fitness and overall wellness. Taking that first step is often difficult. Motivation is hard because of time commitments and lack of information, guidance, and experience in endurance sports. Average to Epic provides motivation by demystifying the world of endurance sports and helping the reader take the first steps in getting into one of these sports and training for an epic event. It guides the aspiring triathlete through the murky waters of their first triathlon as they work toward a half Iron (70.3) or Ironman; takes the non-runner or 5K weekend warrior through the details of good running form on their way to completing their first marathon; and explains the world of cycling to encourage the reader to ride 100 miles on a bike. In doing so, this book helps the reader achieve a broader and more important goal: lifelong fitness.

Immersion

As Paul Newsome, founder of the coaching company, Swim Smooth, tweeted in 2014: 'What gets measured, gets improved.' In many ways, there is nothing unique to swimming about this flourishing culture of quantification.

Immersion

Immersion is about the extreme sport of marathon swimming. Drawing on extensive (auto)ethnographic data, Immersion explores the embodied and social processes of becoming a marathon swimmer and investigates how social belonging is produced and policed. Using marathon swimming as a lens, this foundation provides the basis for an exploration of what constitutes the 'good' body in contemporary neoliberal society across a range of sites including charitable swimming, fatness, gender and health. The book argues that the self-representations of marathon swimming are at odds with its lived realities, and that this reflects the entrenched and limited discursive resources available for thinking about the sporting body in the wider social and cultural context. The book is aimed primarily at readers at undergraduate level and upwards with an interest in sociology, the sociology of the body, the sociology of sport, gender and the sociology of health and illness.

In The Well-Built Triathlete, elite triathlon coach Matt Dixon reveals the approach he has used to turn age-group triathletes into elite professionals and champions. Dixon's method breaks new ground in triathlon training, introducing a new, comprehensive approach that builds the whole athlete for stronger performance. Dixon details the four pillars of performance that form the foundation of his highly successful purplepatch fitness program, showing triathletes of all abilities how they can become well-built triathletes and perform better year after year. The Well-Built Triathlete does not focus narrowly on workouts and training, but instead gives equal weight to training and workouts, recovery and rest, workout and daily nutrition, and functional strength and mobility. Dixon considers the demands of career and family to prepare athletes to achieve their goals through a realistic, practical ecosystem of stress and recovery. The Well-Built Triathlete is Dixon's guide to every aspect of triathlon performance. Chapters on swimming, cycling, and running explain the most effective ways to train for each. His pragmatic approach to stretching, recovery, and effective strength training shows athletes where they can recover valuable time. A purplepatch section shows how triathletes can achieve long streaks of high performance. Dixon's whole-athlete approach to triathlon will help triathletes become greater than the sum of their workouts. By becoming better all-around athletes, well-built triathletes will train and race faster than ever.

Nona and Me

Rosie and Nona are sisters. Yapas. They are also best friends. It doesn’t matter that Rosie is white and Nona is Aboriginal: their family connections tie them together for life. The girls are inseparable until Nona moves away at the age of nine. By the time she returns, they’re in Year 10 and things have changed. Rosie prefers to hang out in the nearby mining town, where she goes to school with the glamorous Selena and her gorgeous older brother, Nick. When a political announcement highlights divisions between the Aboriginal community and the mining town, Rosie is put in a difficult position: will she have to choose between her first love and her oldest friend? Winner, Book of the Year: 2016 NT Literary Awards Highly commended, Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards for Writing for Young Adults Longlisted, 2015 Inky Awards Honour Book, 2015 Children’s Book Council of Australia, Book of the Year for Older Reader Shortlisted, 2016 Territory Read Award ‘A powerful coming-of-age story ... Atkins writes with clear-eyed sensitivity, and although I longed to hear Nona’s voice, its absence is deliberate and effective. Nona & Me is poignant young-adult fiction invoking the complex and often overlooked realities of remote indigenous life.’ —Sydney Morning Herald ‘[Clare Atkins] wrestles with some of this country's most hotly debated political issues with a rare lightness of touch. [Nona & Me is] a convincing portrait of a naive but feverish first love, friendships waxing and waning, and the clash between fitting in and sticking to your values. Above all, there's a warmth and optimism that's hard to resist.’ —Sunday Age ‘This [is a] powerful, beautifully contoured story of cross-cultural friendship.’ —The Weekend Australian
