So if you want a big bang for your buck go the "Kenyan Way" and purchuse RUNNING TO THE LIMIT .

The book in some ways, is like reading a magazine article complete with photos except this article is over some 200 pages.
The book also details some of the training regimens of Kenyan runners complete with schedules and here, I believe some clarification is needed. It is indeed, learning to run the "Kenyan" style.

As it is written by a journalist... it definitely reads like one. Tergat comments after each chapter's text. There are a lot of photos in the book too. The book probably could have been 2 pages long...
