I have been lucky to learn about running from so many incredible people, including each one of my clients. I have also had the privilege of learning from greats like Arthur Lydiard.
One training method I use that does little to raise my VO2 max, but lots to raise my running IQ is to read books and watch movies about running. Some are informational and some are inspirational.
I can't tell you how many times Jay and I have watched the movie MIRACLE about the 1980
Here's a link to some of the titles of books I'd recommend and movies to watch. Authors include my friends Pam Reed and Dean Karnazes.
I have also added this TOP PICKS webpage as a permanent feature of my Blog under the LINKS section on the right-hand side of the page. What books and movies do you use to fire yourself up? To get you through a long treadmill workout? I'd love for this list of favorites to grow!
