    I thought the different aspects of running were very well explained so that a person like myself who does not have a physiology background can understand what goes on with your body during different lengths of runs.I would definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in learning how to run better and what kind of workouts mig

    This is a very nice reference book I checked it out from the library, but I may buy it Some of the info is a little outdated, but it is easy to follow, and the explanations are easy to understand.

    This is a very well researched approach to training with proven results For having such a scientific basis, the book could easily have been dry and boring, but wasn t at all I didn t finish it because, while I think the plan is awesome, it s just not a good fit for me at this point in my life.
