Most serious runners don't realize their potential. They simply stop getting faster and don't understand why. The reason is simple: most runners are unable to run by feel. The best elite runners have learned that the key to faster running is to hear what their bodies are telling them.
Drawing on new research on endurance sports, best-selling author Matt Fitzgerald explores the practices of elite runners to explain why their techniques can be effective for all runners. RUN: The Mind-Body Method of Running by Feel will help runners reach their full potential by teaching them how to train in the most personalized and adaptable way.
Fitzgerald's mind-body method will revolutionize how runners think about training, their personal limits, and their potential. RUN explains how to interpret emotional and physical messages like confidence, enjoyment, fatigue, suffering, and aches and pains. RUN guides readers toward the optimal balance of intensity and enjoyment, volume and recovery, repetition and variation. As the miles add up, runners will become increasingly confident that they are doing the right training on the right day, from one season to the next.
RUN marks the start of a better way to train. The culmination of science and personal experience, the mind-body method of running by feel will lead runners to faster, more enjoyable training and racing.

This book is written for coaches or runners who self coach to meet running goals. It will probably be a bit too much information for the recreational runner. I have used different training plans for 5K - 50K races over the years with various levels of success. Through this book, Matt has helped me understand adaptive training and letting me be the best judge of my training plan, to go harder or softer. But in order to become an adaptive runner, one must know their limits and have at least a decent understanding of different workouts. I really enjoyed learning about how elite runners workout and how they have found success. I have already applied some of the teachings and think that this book will change the way I run for the rest of my running career.
