The book also goes in to the background and reason for each type of workout and highlights the pace and heart rate you should be aiming for.
Also has some decent chapters on strength training, diet, health etc.
Edit: Got a 13 minute PB with this plan on a horrible wet and windy day in Dublin in 2015. Negative split too with the second half a couple of minuites quicker, I felt I had a bit more in the tank too. I will be using this plan again
