From Our Editors
Have you ever wondered how some runners seem to have better endurance than you do? If you’re looking to improve your running program, this book will help you on your way. David Holt’s 10K and 5K Running, Training and Racing offers expert advice on forming a training pyramid for long distance running, taking runners through five stages of training.
