Charts, plans, information on what to eat, wear and pace both in training and performance. And it's Jeff Galloway, who knows what he's talking about.
Jeff Galloway obviously knows what he is talking about when it comes to running. When reading this book, you get the feeling that he's writing two books at once, and he doesn't let you know when he switches from one to the other. On the one hand, he tells you that he does not recommend anyone, beginner or veteran, depart from his run/walk program, yet all of his training plans call for you to train to a goal pace that does not include walking in the race. If you follow his plan, and use his method, you will arrive 3 to 5 minutes after your goal. In his plan for veterans who have run a 5K or 10K before, he has you run and additional 3 to 5 miles in addition to his "magic mile" every Monday, but he does not give you any idea at what pace or temp you are supposed to do this workout. The book repeats itself over and over, and basically it's just a poor job of editing. On the other hand, this book saved my butt for my first 10K race. The humidity was at about 90%, and I knew if I tried to run my intended pace, I wasn't going to make it. I took a chance and utilized an arbitrary run/walk interval and managed to finish at my goal. However, the math in the book doesn't work, and he doesn't explain it. You can figure most of it out; I'm still working on the other part. I haven't decided if I can figure this out enough to actually rely on it for a race strategy or not. I've heard similar stories about most of his books. He repeats himself over and over on obvious things, but doesn't answer the questions that are really begging to be answered.
