This book Road Racing for Serious Runners takes a comprehensive look at training for competitive long-distance racing, containing charts, schedules and checklists to guide the runner in organizing his or her training. Runners select a goal racing distance, then learn how to prepare for success at this chosen distance by using a mix of five workouts: long runs, tempo runs, VO2 max workouts, basic speed sessions, and recovery runs. An individualized programme can be created by adjusting the training schedules provided for common race distances: 5K, 8K to 10K, 15K to half marathon, marathon, and cross country. Included with each of the five training schedules are racing tactics, mental tips, and lessons from world-class runners.

Pressestimmen über Road Racing for Serious Runners

Grounded in impeccable exercise science, this book nonetheless retains a warm, conversational tone that encourages runners of all levels of ability to keep reading beyond their specific areas of interest. The material is extremely well-organized, with charts, schedules, and checklists guiding the runner in organizing her or his training. Beyond just giving instructions, the book imparts knowledge and wisdom, teaching the performance-oriented runner to think rather than just do. (Gordon BakoulisEditor-in-ChiefRunning Times)

This book provides an excellent, comprehensive look at training for competitive long-distance racing. Coaches and athletes can use this book as an outline to prepare for competitive racing. It helps remove guesswork since it contains information on all variables affecting successful racing-from human physiology to actual nuts and bolts workouts. (Mark Conover 1988 Olympic Trials Marathon ChampionCross-country and Track Coach, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo)
