Buy it. Read it. Run faster!
Reading this book feels like getting sound advice from a really good friend. Julie knows how many of us overweight runners convince ourselves that we can't ever run faster. Her ideas are easy to follow and have been tested by women just like me, so I feel like I really can't argue with them! I only wish I read this book on a Friday, because then I could have followed the tip of starting the programme with a timed Parkrun to act as a baseline for time. But I was itching to go for a run the morning after I read the book.
I was confident, after the enjoyable 2 hours it took me to read " Scream... " that I would improve my 5k time. I wasn't sure whether it would help me to train for a 10K or half marathon. However, now I am into my third week, I feel it's helpful in relation to longer distances too. I have never run as frequently as I have since reading the book - 7 runs in 15 days including 2 runs of 10km each. I have achieved a Parkrun PB already and I am planning to go a little faster each week.
Recommended. You have nothing to lose (except minutes off your Pb).
What Julie does in this book, is set out some of the techniques used by more experienced runners, in language we can all understand. She doesn't bamboozle you with the kind of jargon you find in running magazines. So having said that, it's not a book that will get 'more experienced' runners faster as they are probably using the techniques already. But for those of us who plod around 5k, a few times a week, never really thinking about why we're running but still wondering why we don't get faster; it's a very lighthearted way to get you thinking about changing gear!
I will endeavour in future, to get that race photo, where there is air beneath my feet and I don't 'look' like I'm walking!
There are a couple of anecdotal tales within, but the author pulls no punches in pointing out that the only way to get the rewards is to put the effort in. This book can tell you how to do it, but you've got to do it.
There is a solid do-able programme to follow. It is a tried and tested programme, the author has an online club who road tested the programme. One thing I found helpful was the comments by people who had done the programme and the author stating which parts of the programme the participants found harder to stick to.
