My new book is finally ready for release!
Putting One Foot in Front of the Other – Lessons Learned in 30 Years of Running is a compilation of my thoughts on training, racing and finding ways to make your running better and more enjoyable. The book includes revised and expanded articles from this blog as well as some of my other writings on the subject of running over the past couple of years.
When I put this book together, I decided to focus on what, in corporate-speak, might be called the “soft-skills” of running. Things like building your confidence, mental toughness, dealing with rivals, race tactics and the like. You’ll also find sections on interval and hill training, dealing with injuries, and how to be at your best when you need it most.
Here are the Chapter Titles:
1. Consistency is the Key
2. Who Needs a Coach?
3. Covering all the Bases
4. Balancing Hard and Easy Runs
5. How Easy is Easy?
6. Heart Rate Training
9. Interval Training
10. Hill Running
11. Post Run Recovery
12. Dealing with Injuries
14. Mental Toughness
15. Building your Confidence as a Runner
16. Race Tactics
17. How to Improve your Finishing Kick
