Description

The Furman Institute of Running and Scientific Training (known as FIRST) is dedicated to make running more accessible and limit overtraining and burnout while producing faster race times. FIRST is one of the foremost experts in the world on the science of running; its authority is unmatched and the promise of training less and accomplishing more has made the first two editions of Run Less, Run Faster a solid and steady seller.

With 50 percent updated content, this new edition of Run Less, Run Faster continues to promise the same tantalizing results: Readers can get stronger, faster, and better by training less. It will also include more sections for novice runners, broadening the audience appeal, as well as training plans tailored to the new qualifying times for the Boston Marathon. The quality-over-quantity approach optimizes training time and yields better performance--results runners will love no matter what distance they are racing.

  • Got me to a half marathon and beyond

    I bought this on the recommendation of a friend and because it was one of the few training methods that seemed to fit my life. I don't have time to run every day or even four days a week because of work and other things that matter to me. But following the three targeted runs over a sixteen week period, I moved up from being a 10K runner to running a half marathon race. In fact, I finished the race in less time than I expected. I credit the training program in this book for getting me there and for inspiring me to consider a marathon as my next step. Highly recommended.
