Get in the best shape of your running career with the help of Daniels’ Running Formula, the book that Runner’s World magazine calls the best training book. Premier running coach Jack Daniels provides you with his legendary VDOT formula to guide you through training at exactly the right intensity to run stronger, longer, and faster.<br /><br />Choose a program to get in shape, target a race program, or regain conditioning after layoff or injury. Train for competition with programs for 800 meters, 1500 meters to 2 miles, cross country races, 5K to 10K, 15K to 30K, and marathon events. Each program incorporates training intensities to help you build endurance, strength, and speed. With Daniels’ Running Formula, you’ll track the time you spend at each level, train more efficiently, and optimize results.<br /><br />Completely updated with new chapters on altitude training, seasonal programming, and treadmill training, Daniels’ Running Formula, Third Edition, is the most comprehensive, accessible, and instantly applicable edition to date.

But runners will think about the renowned coach and exercise physiologist. At 81, Daniels has had a bigger influence on training-for-running than anyone. Indeed, he might be considered the Albert Einstein of the sport. His 1998 book, Daniels' Running Formula, unlocked the mystery of appropriate training paces for runners of all abilities. His philosophy was simple: Do the minimum amount of work for the maximum payoff." — Runner’s World<br /><br />“In one way or another, today’s serious runners abide by training principles rooted in Jack Daniels’ research and philosophy and outlined in his famous book, Daniels’ Running Formula.” — Running Times

Reviews of The Science of Running:<br /><br />"The Science of Running sets the new standard for training theory and physiological data. Every veteran and beginner distance coach needs to have this on their book shelf."<br /><br />-Alan Webb<br />American Record Holder-Mile 3:46.91 <br /><br />"For anyone serious about running, The Science of Running offers the latest information and research for optimizing not only your understanding of training but also your performance. If you want to delve deeper into the world of running and training, this book is for you. You will never look at running the same."<br /><br />-Jackie Areson, 15th at the 2013 World Championships in the 5k. 15:12 5,000m best<br /><br /><br /> If you are looking for how to finish your first 5k, this book isn’t for you. The Science of Running is written for those of us looking to maximize our performance, get as close to our limits as possible, and more than anything find out how good we can be, or how good our athletes can be. In The Science of Running, elite coach and exercise physiologist Steve Magness integrates the latest research with the training processes of the world’s best runners, to deliver an in depth look at how to maximize your performance.<br /> It is a unique book that conquers both the scientific and practical points of running in two different sections. The first is aimed at identifying what limits running performance from a scientific standpoint. You will take a tour through the inside of the body, learning what causes fatigue, how we produce energy to run, and how the brain functions to hold you back from super-human performance. In section two, we turn to the practical application of this information and focus on the process of training to achieve your goals. You will learn how to develop training plans and to look at training in a completely different way. The Science of Running does not hold back information and is sure to challenge you to become a better athlete, coach, or exercise scientist in covering such topics as:<br /><br />· What is fatigue? The latest research on looking at fatigue from a brain centered view.<br />· Why VO2max is the most overrated and misunderstood concept in both the lab and on the track<br />· Why “zone” training leads to suboptimal performance.<br />· How to properly individualize training for your own unique physiology.<br />· How to look at the training process in a unique way in terms of stimulus and adaptation.<br />· Full sample training programs from 800m to the marathon.
