Overview

Renowned running coach Budd Coates presents a revolutionary yet simple training method based on rhythmic breathing to help runners at all experience levels improve their performance, prevent injury, and experience the joy of running. Validating his method through a mix of accessible science, Eastern philosophy, and the experiences of test subjects, Coates shows readers how focusing on their breathing brings their minds and bodies into harmony and helps them run stronger, faster, and more comfortably.

Rhythmic breathing increases lung volume; improves awareness and control; helps prevent injury and side stitches; improves running for those with asthma; allows runners to quickly set a pace for quality training and racing; and helps athletes manage muscle cramps. This book reviews the basics of rhythmic breathing, teaching readers how to perform it while walking and, eventually, while running. Weeklong sample schedules from different programs shows readers how to apply the rhythmic breathing scale to any workout. Coates also touches on the importance of stretching, cross-training, and core training and provides detailed training plans and schedules.

    I was having trouble with side stitches when running longer dist

    I was having trouble with side stitches when running longer distances and knew that it was related to my breathing. I had tried on my own to regulate my breathing patterns, but this methods detailed in this book put me on the right path. The techniques were simple to learn and have helped me increase my distances from 3 miles to 10 miles without side stitches. About 1/3 of the book is dedicated to training plans for beginning runners (less useful to me, but possibly helpful for others). I bought the Nook version, but may buy the paperback to be able to fold down my favorite pages and write in the margins.

    Interesting

    I didn't know what to expect with this book, but I found it an interesting approach to running. The technique the author discusses is not simple to pick up, but I am enjoying the process.
