It's making me faster...

The 80/20 training plan is sound, based on many athlete experiences and research studies, and works for me. I'm 41 and running longer and healthier than ever.

The reading performance was good if a bit stilted. I use the PDF nearly every day.

Fitzgerald's other books, Racing Weight and Racing Weight Quick Start, are also referenced almost daily. The weight strategies really, truly, healthily work!

Too much to chew at once.

I'm an avid runner and had hoped to learn and enjoy this book. much to my dismay it was just to much. I think a hard copy would be more enjoyable in order to soak up all the facts, figures and funding of such a book. I really wanted to like this but couldn't do it.

Very interesting but not for me in audio format.
