Not a bad guide for the older runner
I enjoyed the book. I have the nook book copy.
I can't say I learned anything new, but it did remind me of some things I had let slip from my mind. For example, now that I'm 50, I can't expect to follow the same training programs as I did at 40. My body has changed.
This book offers a good overview of the bodies physical changes and how it affects running. It reminds those of us who have gotten complacent about our running, the value of long range goal setting.
My biggest complaint regarding this book is several times in the book, there is a box with the following phrase imprinted: "NOTE: Due to Rights limitations, this item has been removed." Somehow I feel I have been cheated for paying a full price for the book, yet I did not get the entire book. I cannot help but wonder what the portion deleted was. Was it a photograph?...a chart?...a celebrity quote? What?

If you're over 50 and thinking about starting a running program,
If you're over 50 and thinking about starting a running program, this isn't the book you want to buy. Being a long time biker, I was able to use a lot of the info aimed at experienced athletes to transfer that conditioning to start developing a running program.Was this review helpful?
