Dr. Ray McClanahan of Northwest Foot & Ankle says: Low Mileage Running is a great book for runners who wish to learn how to maximize their enjoyment of running and their performance. As a lifelong runner, I have made the mistakes Aaron warns of in his book - Too much running volume, too much intensity. I focused on quantity of mileage, as opposed to quality, and suffered the consequences of chronic and repeated injuries. As I approach my 50th birthday, I will be incorporating Aaron's wisdom into my running program, and encourage you to do the same. Your body will thank you and you will get more out of your running.
Brian MacKenzie, creator of Crossfit Endurance says: "In a world that is constantly evolving and looking to more efficient ways to either run a business, or live your life, Olson is offering up what many of us are finding to be truer and truer as time has her way with us. Quality work cannot be outdone by doing more low-quality work. At the end of the day if you're not in the long game nothing you're doing is advancing us in our pursuit of excellence. Aaron Olson is playing the long game."
