Changed my outlook

This book changed how I think about training in some fundamental ways. Before reading it, I was majorly burnt out and considering dropping running all together. The way this book describes the process that contribute to running ability along with its focus on balancing trail load with recovery have allowed me to get back on feet and look forwards t... Read Moreo my next adventure. As of now, I plan to run as many of the Cascade Mountains as I can in the next two years, starting with South Sister. That isn't to say that this book is the magical cure to all your running woes and reading it will grant you the secret to running nirvana. If you are already in a good place with your training, this probably isn't necessary for you, although I'd be willing to bet most people, even some pros, could learn a thing or two from it. The bottom line is that if you're looking to add some new energy to your training or are looking to augment your training and don't know where to start this book will have some good insights for you.

Outstanding Reference Guide

This is an amazing reference guide for those that dont have a coach and or dont know how to begin training for endurance sports. This book helped me train efficiently and avoid injuries. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in endurance sports.

Amazing book!

So much detail. Its a lot to get through but worth the read if you dont want to be exhausted for the uphill and want to be strong.

Great read!

This book was really helpful in lining out training for a big event in about 6 months, even for me, who is a relative newbie to structured training. I also enjoyed the personal stories from various endurance athletes and scientific approach.

A book like none other

I have read training books and raced for years as an age-grouper. Wish I would have read this at 16. The secret to training isn’t hitting it hard for a few months. It’s the slow build, with sleep and listening to the body. Now go grab a copy and read.

So good

I read Training for the New Alpinism when it was first released, and it offered me profound insight into endurance training methodology. This new book offers a mountain-running-specific version of TFtNA, something I’ve desperately wanted for years. The authors are the at the top of their game, don’t shy away from explaining complicated topics in a ... Read Morevery clear way, and offer a new training bible for running and skimo. The only negative of this book is that it’s so good, I just want to sit and read it instead of getting out for a run. A comprehensive resource for beginners and professionals alike.
