4.0 out of 5 stars Substantially amended from previous editions 18 Jun 2014
By Alan D
This third edition of Daniels’ book comprises 15 chapters. In my opinion, the fourth and fifth chapters are the most useful feature of the book. They are entitled ‘training runs and intensities’ and ‘VDOT values’. (Somewhat unconventionally, Daniels uses the term ‘VDOT’ where most coaches and physiologists use the term ‘VO2 max’.) Daniels advises that the ideal duration of each individual effort in an interval session is between three and five minutes. He therefore recommends that only elite-level athletes should do mile repetitions, and that most athletes should not do repetitions exceeding 1200 metres.
The fifth chapter includes a very useful chart enabling a runner to assess his or her current VDOT from recent performances over a range of distances from 1500 metres to the marathon. The chapter also includes a pace chart, giving suggested training intensities for easy runs, marathon-pace runs, threshold runs, and speed sessions for repetitions ranging from 200 metres to a mile, all based on a runner’s current VDOT or VO2 max.
The last six chapters give advice on training to race specific distances, beginning with the 800 metres and ending with the marathon. Chapter 11 deals with training for races from five kilometres to ten kilometres. In my view, this chapter is a significant improvement on the two previous editions, in which the same chapter dealt with races from five kilometres to 15 kilometres, although there are substantial differences between training for a 5km and training for a 15km.
Both the first and second editions of the book had concluded with a single chapter entitled ‘half-marathon to marathon’, although there are very substantial differences between the two distances. For the third edition, the subject in question has been split into two chapters.
