The only guide to running for men and women written by an Olympic marathon gold medallist

Whatever your running goals, reach them and beat them with coaching advice from Olympic marathon gold medallist, Frank Shorter.

Frank's common-sense approach to coaching gives you all the tools you need to train effectively and safely. Running for Peak Performance's eight training programmes cater to every ambition and experience level: first-timers aiming to get fit, charity fun-runners with an upcoming 5km race, and even experienced runners ready to tackle their first marathon. With a new programme to take you beyond your goals and nutritional research to help with what to eat before training, Running for Peak Performance incorporates the latest technology from foam rollers to smart watches. Discover essential stretches and resistance exercises for avoiding injury, and learn how to prepare for your next race.

Anyone can put one foot in front of the other, but with Running for Peak Performance, you can really go the extra mile.
