This text integrates scientific principles about how the body adapts to training with practical information on designing individualized training programmes for middle- and long-distance runners. It covers: the biomechanics and biochemistry of running; goal-setting for competitive runners; developing a plan for total body fitness; strategies for successful racing from the 800-metre through the marathon; integrating psychological and psychiological aspects of athlete development; and stress management.
