The author goes into so much detail from the shoes, to posture, to dieting, to your mental state. Not only that, but it is written in a supportive, uplifting way.
Long distance running is much like any other fitness training. If you want to improve, you need a good plan that has a progressive nature. If you are new to this game, you need a solid foundation to build on.
Having a running program is not the only thing that you need. Sound advice and running tips should be taken from someone who has walked the walk… Or in this case; “ran the run.“
Hi, my name is James Atkinson. I’m a qualified fitness coach and personal trainer, and I have a fair bit of running advice that I would like to share with you.
When I was around 18 years old, I was a terrible runner! In fact, I failed the basic fitness test for army entrance on running alone, and I failed big time!
Several years later, I was clearing 1.5 mile running circuits in 8 minutes and 22 seconds and could easily run a marathon any day of the week!
I would like to share my knowledge and training experiences with you. If you are a beginner when it comes to running, this information will no doubt give you advice that will probably not have even crossed your mind before.
If you are already a runner and are looking to make more progression, you are also in the right place.
I know that it is easy to get stuck on a training plateau, so I have also added some information and training methods to this book that will help you leave the plateau behind.
Some of the chapters include:
- Why Should You Take My Advice? My Story
- Accountability, Commit To Your Goal!
- Where To Start
- Running Style
- When To Eat, What To Eat
- Your Bread-And-Butter Training “Steady State”
- Training On A Track
- Running For Time
- Running For Distance
- Running With Weight
- Dealing With Blisters And Chaffing
- Staying Injury Free
- Putting It All Together And Your Training Plan
All of the information that I provide is written from my own experience as a long distance runner.
I believe that by learning from my mistakes and my advice, you will hit your goals a lot quicker than making these mistakes yourself. Believe me; some of these mistakes can be very painful! As you will soon find out from some of the anecdotes that I am about to share with you.
So grab your running shoes and let’s get started!
