Building off of the success of the two previous editions of Run Fast, this revised third edition features new information and expertise from one of the most well-known authorities in running.
Hal Higdon teaches runners how to improve their speed, regardless of their age or ability or the distance.
Run Fast is the ultimate guide for runners to maximise their potential without merely running faster.
Training programs and tables are expanded and revised to include up to date information with emphasis on motivational and practical support for novice runners.
New material includes developments on running form, strategies for running longer distances faster, a new chapter on the importance of rest, how to knowledge for beginners entering their first race, and advice from the leading scientists and experts in the field.
The book also includes Higdon's new 30/30 plan for beginners, which involves walking and/or running for 30 minutes for 30 days.
Higdon believes that once the 30/30 plan is completed, readers are ready to tackle a 5K.
The book also includes a modified and easier version called the 30/60 plan.
