Great Basic Running Book!
on November 17, 2013
I love reading Jeff Galloway's books. This one is excellent too. I'm a fairly new runner - just started at the beginning of September and was able to run the Marine Corps Marathon 10K at the end of October thanks to this book and his training iPhone apps. Being able to run 6 miles with 7 weeks of training might not seem like much, except that I am a 50 year old woman who hadn't run, at all, since 7th grade, and I kept a consistent 11:00 per mile pace throughout the whole race and finished strong. I am now using this book and another of his apps to help me train for my first half marathon at the end of March. There is great info in this book about the run-walk-run method, training schedules, diet, even apparel. I am glad that I purchased it!
