Book of the Week


Hal Higdon wrote the first ever book on running that I read.  I’ve recently purchased this book and am impressed that nearly 30 years after I read his first book, he is still writing books about training that are easy to read and explain things simply and concisely.

Are you looking for better race times, whether you run 5kms or marathons? Searching for that ultimate, exhilarating moment when you’re running faster than ever before? Or do you just want to have more fun when you run?

You can run faster, and this book will show you how.

Run Fast is a comprehensive guide for runners of all abilities to improve your speed and achieve a personal best at any distance. Hal Higdon is one of the most experienced and trusted experts in running, and this classic volume is completely revised and updated with new workouts, race distances, and advice for runners of every level. Run Fast spells out a complete programme to help you increase your speed, build your endurance, improve your times, and motivate yourself to achieve your running goals.

New training plans for novice runners make getting started easy. More experienced runners will discover refreshing workouts that both improve their speed and make training fun. And, if you’ve taken an exercise break, you’ll see how to get back in shape while staying injury free.

Packed with stories and tips from coaches, record-holders, and average runners alike, Run Fast is brimming with inspiration. Experience the thrill of better race times, the satisfaction of running strong, and the sheer joy that comes from running faster than ever before.
