Summary

Long distance running is much like any other fitness training. If you want to improve, you need a good plan that has a progressive nature. If you are new to this game, you need a solid foundation to build on. Having a running program is not the only thing that you need. Sound advice and running tips should be taken from someone who has "walked the walk", or in this case, "ran the run".
Hi, my name is James Atkinson from jimshealthandmuscle.com. I'm a qualified fitness coach and personal trainer and I have a fair bit of running advice that I would like to share with you. When I was around 18 years old, I was a terrible runner! In fact, I failed the basic fitness test for army entrance on running alone, and I failed big time! Several years later, I was clearing 1.5 mile running circuits in eight minutes and 22 seconds and could easily run a marathon any day of the week! I would like to share my knowledge and training experiences with you.
If you are a beginner when it comes to running, this information will no doubt give you advice that will probably not have even crossed your mind before. If you are already a runner and are looking to make more progression, you are also in the right place. I know that it is easy to get stuck on a training plateau, so I have also added some information and training methods to this book that will help you leave the plateau behind.

Great Tips

Loved this audiobook, as I'm approaching a couple of marathons I thought I'd see if there was anything missing from my training. I certainly have helped myself with a lot of things in this book!

Beginner level

This book is exactly what it says on the cover, a great beginners guide. I am more advanced and still found some aspects very useful and reassuring. Look forward to listening to more of his books

Great Book!

I am training to prepare for the police academy and have found it tough to find books or articles that I can relate to, but with his Military training stories I found it very relatable. I also love the tips to avoid injury, I wish I would've listened to this audible book sooner !
