Publisher Comments:

Revised, updated, and expanded, Lore of Running is proof that even a classic can be improved upon. This edition of running's most extensive book provides unsurpassed information on physiology, training, racing, injuries, and the individuals and events that shaped the sport's history and modern form.

Throughout the book's nearly 1,000 pages, author Tim Noakes combines the expertise of a physician and research scientist with the passion of a dedicated runner. In the process, he answers the most pressing questions for those who are serious about the sport:

  • How body systems respond to training, the effects of different training methods, how to detect and avoid overtraining, and genetic versus trainable potential
  • How to train for the 10K up through ultramarathon with detailed programs from Noakes and several leading running experts
  • How to prevent and treat injuries and increase strength and flexibility for maximum performance
And that just scratches the surface of the many valuable insights offered inside. Lore of Running might well be the biggest and best publication of its kind. Without question, it's one book every runner should own.

Book News Annotation:

Noakes (University of Cape Town) describes the physiology and biochemistry of running, and offers practical training advice for both the beginner and marathon runner. Previously published by Oxford University Press Southern Africa in 2001, the fourth edition recognizes the dominant role played by the brain in determining physical activity performance.
