Jeff Galloway's book on running is a very practical guide that will help any level of runner to improve. His training schedules fit right in with a working man's time frame. The accuracy of the section for predicting race times is so close you'd think he knew you personally! By following his advice 'not common' to all of the other books so called 'conventions' you can meet and exceed your own goals. I give tons of credit to Jeff for his training program that helped me go from no running at all to a first Marathon of 2:49:45. Of course I worked very hard for 6 months, but I had no doubts that this was the right program for me!
