Serious Science for Serious Runners
on February 22, 2013
This books is great- it explains the science behind improving running, instead of just giving instructions or giving anecdotes. The female-specific information covers issues that I have never seen before: monthly hormonal changes, female anatomy, and specific health issues for women. It also provides practical advice, with weekly plans and stretches and strength training. All movements (stretches and strength training) have clear directions and images. This book is probably not for the "couch-to-5k" beginner, but for the runner who is ready to improve on her running. If you're ready to really understand running and see some improvement, this book will not disappoint!
