I do sprint triathlons and running has always been my weakest leg because I've never used a structured run training plan. My 5K time in a sprint tri has been around 30 min. (pretty darn slow). I incorporated Bobby's 5K running plan from Run Workouts into my sprint triathlon plan about two months ago. The structured training, its gradual progression of volume and intensity, and the variety of workouts have kept me motivated and working hard. No more "run twice around the park" for me; I'm actually doing interesting, productive workouts.

And so far I've dropped 7 minutes off my 5K time! That kind of time should result in big gains on race day.

I had the great pleasure to work with Bobby prior to the 2008 Olympics,and was loking forward to this book. It did not disappoint. As a coach, I am always looking for new ways to improve the performance of my athletes. Run Workouts gave me new ideas and training progressions for all types of run training.

This book should be on the shelf of every coach and self coached athlete.

I ordered this book because I do triathlons and running is my weak point. While planning out the upcoming season, I found plans that said to work on speed or endurance, but either had limited examples of workouts to meet those needs or none at all. I got this book hoping that it would fill in those blanks and provide me good workouts that would keep me engaged. I must say that it hasn't failed. I have improved my times and feel like a better runner.

Not only does he have plans for different run distances, he also has plans for different distance triathlons. The plans are easy to follow, but most importantly the workouts are easy to follow. I always played sports and never ran track so I was out of the loop on what the basic exercises were for running. He describes those and makes the workouts clear. Your job with this book is to just follow the plan you chose.

If you aren't able to be coached by Bobby McGee personally, then this is the next best thing. His methods are highly scientific and tested. This handbook is so complete & well-designed that it is accessible to all runners. He has generously 'given away the store' so that we can all benefit! A must-buy!

This is a great book with a lot of workouts - and the best part is that all workouts have definitions for those of us who don't know all the technical running terms! It's also nice that there are choices for the length of race you're training for...

A little daunting at first to learn all the acronyms and abbreviations for workouts, but once I got the hang of it the workouts have been really great – a whole new level of detailed drills a hobbyist runner like me hadn't tried before. Have been using this to train for my 3rd marathon and think that while my overall mileage is lower than usual this is a better way to train, much less injury.

This book is not for the faint of heart, yet it is. The plans are detailed and complex, but do not dictate what pace you need to run. I like that it shooots for time versus distance and allows you to build your strength and endurance. If you follow the plans, you will see improvements. The only downside is the constant back and forth of finding the actual workouts. Other than that, I loved the book, the plans and the results.

This book may have great information... but if you can't read the print, then it's absolutely useless!!!! Whoever put this book together truly didn't take into consideration the fact that folks actually have to be able to read it!!! The type face is tiny, and the color is green on light green paper... what rocket scientist came up with that color combination??? A total waste of money!!!
