Looking forward to using this plan for my next marathon. A co-worker has run 2 PR's using this method. I like the logic in it. Seems to be sound physiology and experience behind it. Thank you to the Authors!

Content is great! Using to prepare for Boston 2016. eBook on Nook or tablet not so great. Embedded tables are almost impossible to read. Can't page backward through tables. Needs more work.
