Overview
The popularity of running has exploded in recent years with over 37 million people counting themselves as avid participants in mankind’s oldest athletic activity. More importantly, new knowledge in the science of running has exploded as well. For the first time, the most cutting-edge exercise science and practical training strategies are combined in one definitive guide. Authored by legendary distance runner and coach, Sally Edwards, esteemed exercise physiologist and former president of the American College of Sports Medicine, Carl Foster, Ph.D., and noted sports journalist, Roy M. Wallack, Be a Better Runner is guaranteed to make you faster and stronger—whether you’re a beginner working on your first 5k, a seasoned competitive runner, or a long-time veteran looking to avoid injury and re-energize your workouts.
You’ll find the most progressive training and competition methods right at your fingertips:

-The Black Hole: The most valuable new concept in running training. Learn how to bypass the commonly used training zone that impedes progress and recovery.
-Heart Zones Training: An updated version of the acclaimed training methodology that increases speed and an objective measure of how much work your body is doing.
-Barefoot Running: Adherents of this small but growing back-to nature trend claim injury reduction and running longevity, but there are a lot of unknowns. Is it right for you all the time, occasionally, or never?
-Perfect Form: Learn how to individualize form for your body from foot strike to arm swing to body rotation for maximum performance and injury avoidance.
-Race-Day Primers: Learn how to score your best time by tapping the science of race physiology, digestion, and calorie usage. Train for any race from 5k to marathons!
-Run Less to Run Better: You’ll learn why cross-training activities such as cycling, swimming, rowing, elliptical training, and hiking are not just a fun break from running, but are absolutely critical to running better.
-Eat Right, Eat Well: The right food at the right time will dictate your ability to go long and strong, manage your weight, and recover quickly from hard workouts.
"Be a Better Runner" is filled with step-by-step photos and illustrations that show you the mechanics of form and technique. With this cutting-edge combination of exercise science, time-tested coaching techniques, and competitive running strategies you’ll run farther, faster, and longer for the long haul.
