His insights into applying different types of workouts and periodization in training are some of the best I've seen. The information on weight training, cross training, stretching and nutrition were also helpful. I've never been disciplined about stretching before or after I run, but after reading this book I see that this small step could really help my running.
Finally, the anecdotes from his years as a college coach are inspiring, heart-warming, and at times hilarious. Any veteran or beginning runner will appreciate the stories that animate this monograph. Coach Martin has written a book that will stand the test of time!
