This book is a full-color workout guide for achieving running fitness and performance goals, whether a reader wants to set a personal record in an upcoming 5K or complete his first marathon. Introductory chapters cover assessment, running health, shoes and equipment, running form, warm-ups and cool-downs. At the heart of the book are workout chapters on running for fitness, as well as preparing for every race distance from the mile to the marathon. Each workout has been updated from the previous edition and color coded based on intensity. Entirely new chapters have been added on Cross Training, Recovery, and The Female Runner. Recent developments in the running scene will be covered, including changes in running shoes (or no shoes at all), training with electronic devices, and the latest theories on stretching, recovery, and adaptation.
