There are multiple such examples all over the book where the same idea has been broken down into several tips, like minimal running, core training in the gym, etc. Overall, I learnt quite a bit from this book but I felt that the ideas were painfully stretched and if you read it, you would feel that approximately half of the book is just repetitions.
If the price is ok with you than I suggest reading it.
The best part of the book, however, is that the information is PRACTICAL--you can apply it every day, including the days you don't run. In fact, the day after I bought it, I applied three tips on one run: Tip 1 (Hill workouts don't have to be repetitions), Tip 21 (Once a week, run something random) and Tip 22 (Learn to love negative splits). There are tips on getting stronger, getting faster, avoiding injury, running style/mechanics, racing and race day, eating, and more. It's also a great companion to the e-book that Jason Fitzgerald co-authored, The Rebel Running Guide, which contains (among other things) detailed training plans.
Keep the subtitle of this book in mind: "A SHORT Guide to Running Faster, Preventing Injuries, and Feeling Great." This is not a massive tome or the definitive guide to running. But it is a great collection of useful information for beginning and advanced runners alike--and all for less than the price of a single magazine. Highly recommended.
I'm happy to say that using a number of his core and ITBand exercises and other training-related suggestions, I've accomplished what I couldn't through months of physical theory and painful running. I've been back on the run for almost a month without issue and feeling stronger with every passing day.
His website, much like this book, is a treasure-trove of great training advice ranging from diet, training, racing and recovery. Truthfully, having read a ton of his blog posts you probably could find the same information on his website, but that would require tons of time and an impossible task of collecting and condensing it into a usable format. This ebook distills down tons of information into a compact and easy to read resource that I know I refer back to many times. I took another piece of his advice - to read as much as you can about running and become a student of the sport - and can say that this book ranks near the top of my list for must read books. It's well worth the investment.

A good read for beginner runners. It is a quick and easy read and for the cost, even experienced runners could pick up a thing or two even if it was to just as a reminder.Published 13 months ago by k
