Run Faster: From the 5k to the Marathon: How to Be Your Own Best Coachby Brad Hudson
Synopses & Reviews
Competitive running is more popular than ever, with local charity races and major marathons attracting record numbers of participants. And all these runners have one goal in common: from twelve-minute milers to sub-five-minute milers, they all want to run faster. A former All-American at the 10,000 meters and two-time U.S. Olympic Trials marathoner, Brad Hudson has developed adaptive running, an innovative and highly successful approach to training. Instead of relying on cookie-cutter regimens, Hudson closely monitors how his athletes respond to training before prescribing their next day’s session.
In Run Faster: From the 5K to the Marathon, Hudson enables self-coached runners to do for themselves what top coaches do for their athletes: custom tailor their training plans. Once they’ve identified a goal race, Hudson guides runners to become their own best coach, helping them:
•assess their fitness, their strengths, and weaknesses
•find a starting point and evaluate their responses to workouts
• learn how to alter workout cycles in response to how they're feeling and what else might be affecting their training.
With Hudson’s guidance, runners will avoid injury, train smarter and more effectively—and will soon run faster than they’d probably ever thought possible.
