Product description

From the Back Cover

"Terrific for beginning runners. A fitness program that's simple and works." Bill Rodgers, four-time Boston Marathon Winner, four-time New York City Marathon Winner

A Revolutionary Approach to Running for Fitness and Pleasure from One of the Greatest Runners of All Time

"Remarkably thorough and well-balanced. Will keep you running for decades." Amby Burfoot, Editor, Runner's World, 1968 Boston Marathon Winner

"Runners have much to gain from Alberto Salazar's world-class knowledge." Mary Decker Slaney, World-Record Holder, Olympian

In Alberto Salazar's Guide to Running, the marathon hall-of-famer draws on the latest research and his own experiences to show why, when it comes to reaping the many health and fitness benefits of running, harder and longer isn't better, and consistency matters most. He shares his hard-won lessons on running and outlines a sensible and adaptable low-impact training program for nonrunners wanting to get fit, runners dissatisfied with their current workouts, runners recovering from injuries, and anyone looking for a fitness program they will follow for years.

About the Author

An NCAA track and cross country champion at the University of Oregon, Alberto Salazar burst onto the American and world marathon scene with a victory in the 1980 New York City Marathon. During his running career he set one world and six U.S. records in various distances. He broke longstanding marathon records in New York in 1981, and Boston in 1982, and won the New York event three years in a row. Beset by injuries for nearly a decade, Salazar returned to competitive running in 1995 and won the 53.75-mile Comrades ultramarathon in South Africa. A marketing executive with Nike, Salazar now runs mostly for fitness and enjoyment. Richard Lovett, a veteran of numerous marathons and an avid runner, is a full-time writer and author of The Essential Touring Cyclist, (Ragged Mountain Press, 1994) and co-author of The Essential Cross Country Skier (Ragged Mountain Press, 2000). He is a former law professor who also holds a Ph.D. in economics. Hometown: Portland, Oregon (both)
