Running in the Midpack: How to be a Strong, Successful and Happy Runner (Paperback)
An expert running guide designed to engage with the substantial, and growing, yet often overlooked, middle-of-the-pack runner, by Martin Yelling, the London Marathon's official coach.
While most running guides favor beginners and elite runners, this groundbreaking book is specially devised with mid-packers in mind and will provide this important group with all the expert knowledge they need to go faster and go further.
Running in the Mid-Pack will offer advice on how to reduce the risk of injuries, work through performance plateaus, and bring more enjoyment to the training process through a fascinating mix of expert knowledge, runners' stories and sample workouts.
