I just published my book Low-Mileage Running: A Short Guide to Running Faster, Injury Free! Over the past several years I have learned how to stay injury free and run faster, by focusing on quality, rather than quantity in my training. If you’ve struggled to stay injury free or are looking for a way to optimize your training, buy my book to find out how I been able to set personal records while running fewer miles.
In the coming weeks I will be publishing my book in print and audio as well.
I am excited to share the training strategies I’ve developed over the past few years and I look forward to hearing feedback from you.
I’m working on a book about running faster, while running less. Below is an excerpt. Here is a link to the full blog post and my new website devoted to the topic at lowmileagerunning.com.
Running Less, Running Faster
“Since the first running boom of the 1970s, an increasing number of runners have begun to believe that the more they train, the more successful they will be. In fact, there is a limit to the amount of training the body can benefit from.” – Tim Noakes, Lore of Running (p. 291)
Is it possible to get faster while running less?
In the spring of 2011, I put the idea to the test by running very few miles, 20-25 miles per week, and focused on running fast high intensity workouts 1-2 times per week.
