For those unfamiliar with Olympian Galloway's books, his books are straight forward and uncomplicated. He can make topics that are relatively complicated such as discussing how your metabolism works in a few pages and make it understandable. His book covers a variety of topics that do cater to the masters runner that includes heath issues, psychological aspects, training methods, drills (my favorite), running form, his walk/run method, nutrition for aging runners, fat burning , nutrition and more. There's some hard realities such as the need to cut back on training based on age such as every other day from 45-59 and use cross training as an alternative. Good training tips like using more hill work to replace track work to reap benefits of strength training with some speed and power. He also emphasizes the need to maintain the long run. An example of his brevity is his discussion of two conditioning drills that help with speed and form, cadence and acceleration/glide. Both drills are helpful but are described so briefly, I had to read the cadence drill twice to realize how simply it is to apply. If you've read Jack Daniels books which are far more advanced and for relatively competitive runners, this probably is not your book. Gallloway generally writes for the masses, those that are more inclined to have a goal of finishing a marathon as opposed to a fast time, not that his training tips can't help everyone to some degree, and those that just enjoy running for exercise. I gave the book four stars because it lacks an index and a list of references. Galloway also has a friendly web site and fun running vacation camps.

I bought this book last year to help me train to run a half-marathon. In November I finished the Philadelphia Half Marathon, in 2hrs 52min, without this sensible training book, I couldn't have done it.
I gave my copy to another older runner and now she just completed a half-marathon in Washington, DC.

Great book, highly recommend. Now I need to buy a new one, planning on running the Marathon in Philly this November. Who says 70 year olds can't compete?

I like the book because the chapters follow a logical sequence, and his information seems really helpful for me. I have tried the run walk run method and my times do not change and I feel better at the end of a run

This writer gives a concrete, step-by-step method to condition an older body for running. I'm 65 yrs. old, haven't run for 15 yrs., and have begun running again, using Galloway's advice. So far, so good!!!

I'm a middle age female runner who has suffers with shin splints for the last two years. I have tried everything possible to get rid of them with no success. After reading Jeff's book I tried the run walk run program and I am pleased to say that not only are my shin splints gone, but I'm back to running at least 3 days a week and currently training for a 10K using Jeff's program. Jeff gives some great training tips. As an "older" runner I recommend this book and Jeff's program. I also purchased Galloway's Book on Running.

Format: Paperback
I love this book to answer the question I always get as a personal trainer and running coach, "How do I start?" Galloway explains the run/walk method clearly and it helps many stay injury free when they start running, or if they are coming back from an injury.

I don't agree with his nutrition advice because I am a long-time vegan and have been running successfully without injury for most of the past 32 years. My mom, aunt & both sisters had breast cancer (and most adults also had major heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis), and docs told me to do things very differently to avoid my family's fate.

My docs continue to be amazed at my fitness and lack of any disease, considering the family history. I attribute much of that to Galloway's books. This one is def my favorite because it is the goal of so many runners, especially as we age and realize that running is a precious gift that can be taken away at any time. Galloway's books are the best protection to see that you run until a ripe old age. ;) I also enjoy his CDs that inspire me in the car.

Thanks to Jeff's run/walk method and inspiration I'm still running 30 years after high school track.
Actually I took a 20 year hiatus but wish I'd known about Jeff's method earlier.
This book tells it all in one sentence.
People who live an active lifestyle live longer as research shows.
Then gives solid advice on how to maintain an active lifestyle and have fun doing it.
