Galloway's Book on Running Reviews
As someone who is preparing for their first half-marathon, I have never used the Galloway method, although there are several people on the training team who do use it. I wanted to get the book first just to determine the best way to handle my once-weekly long runs over 10 miles. Based on his advice, I was able to get through the first 10-mile run feeling better than the prior week of 8 miles without hitting the wall like I did the week before. That was without even doing any walking. With that said, once I finish this event, I want to try his method in future to see if it helps me feel better, decrease my overall time, and get through the training cycle for another half marathon. The book is well written, easy to understand, and hopefully will help me with that goal. I would recommend this book as it has works for thousands of folks. Have an open mind and see what happens.
I really enjoy this book with the plans and suggestions. Jeff Galloway makes training seem 0% stressful and all about enjoyment. I highly recommend his methods. My 5 star rating is for the methods.
"Galloway's Book on Running" by Jeff Galloway has become a running classic, providing the basics about running, training, and racing for years.
I have beenb working with a trainer for over a year and mentioned one day that I had always wanted to be a runner. Slowly I began to jog and then decided that I wanted to go faster. At 69 years of age one has to be careful and cofident. My trainer and this book has be jogging/ running two miles !
In my opinion, the best book I have read in this sport, but it can be improved by inclusion of:
This is his BIG overall book, from Shelter Publications. I had wanted this one for reference, when I got beyond needing beginners' advice and help. Its a good book, stands alone; so if you dont buy any other Jeff Galloway's books..at least have this one on hand.
Best running book I've come across. I've run 11 marathons since buying the book. Its written in very straight forward style,, , very balanced and pragmatic, with advice on a large assortment of running issues. With the walk run method, you can really enjoy running with out the stress of trying to keep going at any cost. Its probably the main reason i'm still running. Anyone I've referred this book too has become a real believer .
This book is perfect for those who have just discovered running and would like a primer on how and how not to train.
