Training Young Distance Runners-3rd Edition Reviews
a must read for parents and coaches of cross-country runners, gives the basics on training based on experience levels and age. It also talks about normal growth and development and how to avoid injuries, good stretches to warm up with, problems experienced by young runners, good nutrition, the mental aspects of running, and many other subjects for a thorough review
Excellent book for the young runner and their parents. Complete information on training and nutrition. Especially like the chapter on the mental approach to running. The information on weight training is a bit elementary and lacking, but you can find that information online. Overall there isn't a better book for the high school runner.
Bought it for my grand daughter who is a x-country runner in High School. Lots of training tips and very well written. Wish I had this book when I coached this sport in the early sixties.
Great read for our budding young runner.
XC coach...gave me tons of insight and reassurance:)
Got book for my granddaughter (13). Read it thoroughly. I last ran cc in 1964 - nothing like this was available. Fantastic!! I since bought a copy for her cc coach & myself. Coach loves it!
Well written- great science- solid training information-all coaches of young runners should have this book in their library.
Best book to read for new or experienced coaches. Love the periodization charts and helpful example workouts!
