Millions of people jog every day, but only one book can teach you the technical crafts and secrets. Chock-full of technique and innovative detail, The Perfect Stride is your go-to book for all things running. The difference lies not in who’s fastest or most fit, but who has the best stride and running form. This is where your real potential lies, and now, author Thomas Reckmann shows you how to reach it.
It all comes down to running technique—the stride that is efficient, time-saving, and easy on the body. Marathons and races become a delightful experience with these solutions:
How to train your technique
The running cycle
The shortcut to faster running
Multiple training sessions
In running culture, books and blogs are full of tips on intervals, threshold workouts, and heart rate counters. On the other hand, perfect technique is rarely discussed. With The Perfect Stride as your personal trainer, you’ll discover how to get to the light and efficient stride that will make your daily runs a dream.
It’s race day and you have your quick-closure running shoes, sleek suits, bikes, goggles, and watches, but if you haven’t been training with the proper nutrition, you’ll be left in the dust in the third mile.
Enter Swim, Bike, Run—Eat to guide you through day one of training to the finish line and help your body perform at the peak of fitness. In this book, an ideal companion to author Tom Holland’s The 12-Week Triathlete, he will join sports dietitian Amy Goodson covering race-day essentials, food choices to complement your training regimen, as well as recovery nutrition.
Learn how to determine what to eat; what to drink; how many calories to consume each day; whether or not to carry snacks while training; the difference between taking in calories from solid foods, semi-solids, and liquids; and whether or not to take electrolyte or salt tablets. Casual and core triathletes alike require a nutrition guide that is easy to understand with expert advice that is easy to implement. Look no further and get ready to take your triathlon to a new, healthier level.
