    Hey Inigo

    I’m a Belgian student and I want to purchase your book Endurance Training, but I don’t have Paypal. Is it possible to pay with my MasterCard ?
    My second question is if it’s possible to get a student discount, 149,80€ is a big amount for me and I already lend it to much from our school library.
    Hopefully you can help me out.

    Yours sincerly
