Declan Connolly did a "webinar" for the NSCA (National Strength & Conditioning Association) a couple months back. If the book is good, then I may pay to watch his webinar. Plus, I get CEU's for my training certifications.

Let me know.

The book was fantastic! When I was reading it in front of my bf he got all excited because he actually knew one of the guys who wrote it. He is a rower and had gone to Vermont to do the testing. He said those guys really know their stuff and he learned a lot. The book is easy to read and is very in depth with the whats and whys of doing heart rate training. I've added in some weight training to the routine now and am having great results. You should really watch the webinar. I would and I don't get CEUs!


My son made this for me:

Excellent. Thanks for the review. Guess I'll pick up a copy for myself.

Let me know if you need any suggestions on the weight training. Smart move. Not only is it important for injury prevention, but it will help improve your running economy.

If you think about simple physics, the amount of work you do is equal to force multiplied by displacement. Thus, if you are stronger then you can apply a greater force to the ground - and, you are displaced farther! If you cover a given distance in a faster time (i.e. speed/velocity), then you have improved! And, because you were able to accomplish it just by putting more force into the ground, there would be theoretically no change to your energy consumption - meaning that you're more efficient!!
