I would just "eat" then later run, always ending in discouragement because of my endurance. I understand now why diet, proper hydration and breathing is so important. The book even provides a one week meal plan to get you started on the right path.
There is so much information in this book, whether you are looking to run competitively, or just to get yourself in shape, all the answers can be found in this book that will make you a success in your running efforts.
I've only used the techniques in this book a couple days now but have to say already my mind and body is enjoying the running more than it ever did before.I am believing I too could run in a Marathon and contemplating boosting up my overall goals. I love this book and the way the author puts believe in your efforts.
As you read through this book it becomes apparent very quickly the author does know what they are talking about. If you're looking for a "complete" book on running you won't be disappointed.
Easy 5 start to the Author.
Although the focus of this book is on running a marathon, it is equally as valuable to anyone who is training to run the half marathon or even a 5K or 10K. The author goes over in great detail diet, including menus and what to eat when eating out and are in training -- so helpful! Also covered is how to keep hydrated, proper running form, how to choose the best running shoes and gear, strength training, mental training and so much more!
I finished my first half marathon. Barely. I know I would have done so much better if I had had this book while training. I definitely plan to use it while training for my next one.
I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars! Highly Recommend!
Great charts and guides
lots of helpful information
several training plans
Could have been better formatted for tablets. You would probably be better off buying the physical copy.
It was interesting that choosing the right shoe can be critical, I hadn't thought of that before. The author gives plenty of details about how diet and hydration can make or break your success. She also shares the exact foods you should and shouldn't eat while training.
I highly recommend this book for people who are interested in marathon running.
