5.0 out of 5 stars The Must Have Book for Old and New Runners 12 Mar. 2013
By Jay W. Van Hoose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I heard about this book from Richards POD CAST - "The Natural Running Network Live" and knew that it was a book for me. As a runner who has spent to many years on the couch it was time for me to get back into the sport. But this time I wanted to do it right and I realized that a lot in the field of running has changed of over the past 20 years or so. Be opened minded if you are not familiar with the use of Heart Rate monitors and how they will help you improve in your performance. Also I am in the process of changing my style of running from a "HEEL" striker to a "MID FOOT" runner. I have no real choice in the matter as a man in my 60's with a slight tear in my ACL I needed to change my ways. This book is just what I have been looking for. Richard does a great job of explaining the ins and outs of his program and you get the benefit of his 20 plus years of experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars This plan works! 28 Oct. 2014
By Greg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I started following Richard's podcasts and purchased My Best Race and applied his prescription to my marathon training. I changed from a "no pain, no gain" mentality to a "train the aerobic system" mentality, paying particular attention to heart rate. Over that time, I dropped my marathon time from just a couple of minutes short of 4 hours down into the 3:20s and the improvements continue. The plan makes sense and if you stick with it, you WILL see remarkable results!
5.0 out of 5 stars Heart Rate training and racing done right. 11 Jun. 2015
By Brian G. Hydro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great Book. Richard Diaz is the real deal. I wish I could afford to have him as my personal coach. The Natural Running Network Podcast is great for runners. Some of the podcasts that discuss running training and racing are priceless. Good info on his website by the same name. This guy has tons of experience working with high level athletes in all sports including running and triathlon. I loaned out my issue of his first book and had to have the updated version. Quite an education in running.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sound Approach to Improving Your Running 11 Mar. 2013
By Matheteis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having received hands-on training by the author over this past month, I can happily recommend this insightful guide to gaining technical and strengthening tips to achieve your "Best Race." But it is more than a mere compilation of isolated tips - it provides a full scale philosophy of recreational running that ties everything from health & diet research to painful drills & exercises into one sound overarching approach that's without a doubt going to reap rewards for your effort in taking to heart this valuable training method. Thanks, Richard, for taking the time to bind together your years of experience and running wisdom into one volume!
4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome content, bAd prooof-Reeding 8 Dec. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The content is great. I listen to Mr. Diaz's podcasts of the Natural Running Network, and really believe he knows what he's talking about. Much of his information is spelled out in this book, which is great. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to improve their running and do it in a smart way. I have run stupid for too long. The only drawback to me about this book is that there are a lot of proofreading errors throughout. If I were rating proofreading, it would unfortunately only get one star from me.
