HASH(0xa2b3fae0) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Excellent book filled with lots of helpful tips! 30 de mayo de 2004
Por Amazon Customer - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
This book starts off by breaking runners into categories from Novice to Elite. There are 7 categories (further broken down by age groups and gender), and any recent race time (from 5k all the way to marathon) can be used to help you find out where you fit. Glover explains the different training concepts to help you improve your times. He goes into a lot of detail about all of the important topics. He gives weekly mileage guidelines, talks about maintaining a running base (what % of your weekly mileage should be used as a base), and what paces you should be training at based on your desired race time. Although his advice is specific (and supported with examples of studies that have been done to prove how certain concepts work), all of his advice can be adjusted to fit the individual reader's level and goals. He gives examples of training schedules for the 5k up to the marathon for each category of runner, and tells you how to write your own schedule. He gives many examples of different types of speedwork, hill training, and tempo training so runners can add variety to their own schedules. He says how often each workout should be done on a weekly basis, and at what point they should be done in the training cycle. This is a great book, easy to read, and full of tips that can help you improve your time at any distance.
I used to do my daily runs at the same pace, and train without a plan. Last year I started training using the concepts explained in this book (speedwork, hills, long run distances), and I have been able to cut 13 minutes off of my half marathon time in less than 8 months. These training concepts are well known, but Glover customizes them to the reader's level, gives many different examples of each type of workout, and expains which workouts are best for the distance you are training for (For example, he says 1 mile intervals are better when training for the 10k up to the marathon, while power intervals and repeats will be more helpful when training for a 5k or shorter distance). This is a great book, and I wish I had read it sooner.

HASH(0xa2bc500c) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great resource - don't confuse it though 22 de agosto de 2005
Por pistol pete - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
This book is a great resource for all aspiring competitive runners. However, don't confuse this book with Glover's other book - which is more for beginning and non-competitive runners. There is a lot of overlap between the two books, so there is not much point in buying both. However, I can see a beginner outgrowing the beginner book and wanting the extra info that the "Competitive" handbook can provide. Both are great.

HASH(0xa2bc5444) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Returning to Racing? 6 de mayo de 2000
Por A.Trendl HungarianBookstore.com - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
Let's forget that this book is a huge bestseller in the running market. Lots of running books are more hype than content, or only regurgatate what last month's "Runner's World" has said, and sell just as well. However, "The Competitive Runner's Handbook" is informative, thorough and engaging.

Returning to racing after some fifteen years of basic jogging, I needed a book that took my knowledge seriously. Glover and camp give hard-core, nuts and bolts info. They've provided for the various levels of fitness. I'm not going to run my high schools times first time out, but what happens when I get my speed down? It is in here. Solid how-to, without the fluff of running psychobabble.

Run a 10K? Wanna know how byou might do in a 20K? In a half-marathon? Charts galore. How 'bout intervals and tempo workouts. Marathon training tips? 5K tips? Got 'em!

The beauty of this book.. and the fundmental reason I recommend it, is because the base of info and guidance here is fantastic.

HASH(0xa2bc5318) de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Great Reference Book for runners abilities 24 de noviembre de 2003
Por PaulB - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
This book covers everything with regards to training,
equipment, nutrition, and crosstraining for everything
from running the 5K race to the marathon. The language
is very simple to understand, and provides useful
charts with regards to times in age-class groups, and
how they would rank in a field of runners, from your
back of the pack runners to your elite runner. It also
accounts for clothing, warming up, cooling down,
and everything imaginable related to running. If you
don't have a coach, or can't afford one, this is
probably your best alternative in terms of learning
how to train effectively and properly. Bob and
Shelley-Lynn really know what they are talking about,
and even the seasoned veterans might find it useful.
I have been running off and on since 1983, but I
didn't have any real ideas of how to train and eat
right until I read this book with regards to
competitive running. This book is highly recommended
if you intend to race competively in the 5K, 10K,
1/2 marathon and/or marathon. This should be your
Running Bible. If you haven't ran in a while, I
suggest consult your family physician before you
begin training, especially if you're really out
of shape, overweight, and a smoker or drinker.
It's probably best to use it as a reference guide
if you don't have the time to read through all
the book at once.

HASH(0xa2b3fd38) de un máximo de 5 estrellas You need this book!!!! 15 de octubre de 2006
Por amstellylite - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
As a 5k runner (25:00), I ordered this book to give me a little more info to train more efficiently. I had run a half marathon, and had no interest in doing a full marathon. I read the entire book, and began following Glover's recommendations. I saw almost immediate results. I then figured out (with Glover's help) that I, too, could do a marathon. I have dropped my 5k time to a new PR of 20:48 and will be running my first marathon in 2 weeks. I have followed his schedule very closely and have had no injuries and have improved dramatically. I even keep this book in my bathroom and reread a segment each morning!!! Every time I go back to it I learn a little more. When I did decide to do a whole marathon, I bought several books. This one far surpasses any other book out there. It is definitely worth the money!!!!
