    A great read for training!

    Jeff Galloway gives great advice for training for a half-marathon. I purchased this book and read it quickly, highlighting important points to reference as I train.

    ok, i guess

    I purchased this to help me get some training info for my second half marathon. I feel like this book didn't give me any new information. Plus the training schedule has you running 6 days a week. As a nurse who is on her feet for the most of 12 hour shifts, I find myself tired all the time working out 5 days a week. I feel like there could have been more information as well. The book was short for what you pay.
