The Runner's Handbook

Helps any runner run smarter, better

My husband ordered this book for me and honestly, I was quite put off at first. I mean any real runner like myself, and we’re talking darn-good *marathon* runner here, doesn’t need any book telling them how to be a better, more successful runner. Sheez, you’re born with it or you’re not -Right?

Wrong! The Runner’s Handbook really spells out great advice for advanced runners or those just starting to run road races. The Runner’s Handbook is packed with lots of great general information on running, injuries, diet and more.

I came to rely on the comprehensive training schedules and benchmark times for every commonly raced distance from the mile to the marathon that Bob Glover included in his book. This is how I came to learn why I wasn’t as good (proportionally) at the 5k as I was at a marathon. It’s a different training regimen, a different mind-set, and after reading this book it’s easy to understand and correct.

When I really want to get motivated, I flip back to the Race Predictor appendix, calculate how fast I should be running, and set new goals for myself. Any runner of any ability who wants wants to set new goals (and what runner doesn’t)should look to this book as *the* tool.
