USED BUT IN GREAT CONDITION NOW ONLY 7.00 WITH UK P&P
The Runner’s Guide by British Athletics was very similar to the Lydiard/Gilmore book, it contained information on nutrition, training programmes for various distances and degrees of competitiveness, and the physical and physiological aspects of running. The physiological reasoning behind “hitting the wall” when running marathons was the biggest thing I learned from this book.
I have never run far enough to experience hitting the wall, I have reached my anaerobic limit many times competing 400m sprints and it’s the only thing I can compare it to. A lot of people think that hitting the wall is a mental hurdle marathon runners have to overcome, but The Runner’s Guide explains it as the depletion of the more readily available glycogen in the body and the shift to having to use fat stores.
