Book Description

Nov. 3 2004

Get in the best shape of your running career with the scientifically based training in Daniels' Running Formula. In the book that Runner's World magazine called “the best training book,” premier running coach Jack Daniels provides you with his proven VDOT formula to guide you through training at exactly the right intensity to become a faster, stronger runner.

Choose from the red, white, blue, and gold programs to get into shape, target a race program, or regain conditioning after a layoff or injury. Race competitively with programs for 800 meters, 1500 meters to 3000 meters, cross country races, 5K to 15K, and half-marathon up to the marathon. Each program incorporates the right mix of the five training intensities to help you build endurance, strength, and speed, and Daniels' intensity point system makes it easy to track the time you spend at each level.

The formula can be customized to your current fitness level and the number of weeks you have available for training, and it provides the perfect solution for short training seasons. Get the results you're seeking every time you lace up your shoes for a training run or race with the workouts and programs detailed in Daniels' Running Formula.

From the Publisher

"This book is a fine example of the perfection that the running world has come to expect from Jack Daniels. Well thought out, concise, and purposeful, it embodies the training programs of time-proven principles that enhanced my own running performances. Simply put, Daniels’ formula works. This book is a must read for every runner and coach interested in achieving peak performance."

Jim Ryun Former world record holder—880 yds, mile, and 1500m Three-time Olympian

"Great book! Its organization and explanations are long overdue. The book is full of technical information that is reader friendly. A huge bonus is the anecdotal information that is most helpful in understanding a variety of issues related to running."

Joan Benoit Samuelson Two-time Boston Marathon champion Gold medalist, 1984 Olympic women’s marathon

"Whether you are a beginning runner or an aspiring Olympian, Jack Daniels’ formulas can help you achieve your full potential with the least risk of injury or illness along the way."

5.0 out of 5 stars The only running book you need Jan. 5 2008
Format:Paperback
I have a lot of books on running, but if I needed only one, it would be this one. Quite simple to understand (no real formulas), tables that explain where you are in term of your current running ability, which paces to use, how to make a training plan... everything is inside. You can use one of four predefined training plans or make your own by using Dr Daniels' instructions (how many quality workouts, which one in each phase of your preparation, their duration and pace).
Every runner knows the terms like Repetitions, Intervals, Marathon, Easy (or recovery) pace, but nobody knows what it is and how fast it is.
For the first time I found in this book which time corresponds to each one of these paces (according to my current fitness).
Even if you are not too interested to know all the physiological details on running, stress and recovery, it is worth of trying to understand the benefits of each pace.
So, once again, if I had to keep only one book on running I own - this would be The One.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best running book for the scientifically minded! Feb. 9 2004
Format:Paperback
My running library contains more than 20 books and I rate this one the best. It offers a truly scientific way of training. Each and every point is thoroughly explained. A book like this is an absolute delight for the thinking runner who not only wants to know what to do, but also why. The book is very practical too, as the instructions are distilled into just a few tables - all easy to use. You will learn Daniels' proven methods to improve endurance, lactate threshold, VO2Max and mechanical running speed. The real beauty of this book is that it can be used by elite runners and slow beginners alike; the tables accommodate all runners and tell us exactly what to do based on our recent race times. If I could choose only two books on running, it would be this one and The Lore of Running by Dr Tim Noakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Go To Book for Distance Training June 4 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has been a great tool for my training. After reading the book I realized that a lot of my previous training was done too fast, especially my "easy" runs. I was injured regularly. Now that I have been training at proper intensities(after reading the book), I find running more enjoyable and I'm staying injury free. The book can be a little technical, but I feel it is required to fully justify Daniel's approaches to training. This is definitely the kind of book you will keep nearby during your training as you will want to reread certain parts depending on where you are in your training. I am extremely happy with this book, and have no reservations recommending this book to beginners, mid-packers and elite runners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take your running to the next level Oct. 15 2013
By Paul
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm writing this review a couple of days after managing to qualify for the Boston Marathon with a sub 3:15 personal best thanks to this fantastic book. Not only do the plans in Jack Daniel's book actually work, he manages to explain clearly the sports science behind why you need to do particular types of runs and precisely what pace you should be aiming for with each workout.

What I particularly like about the book though is that the plans are flexible enough to fit most peoples actual lives. Two 'quality' workouts a week (including the weekend long run) and the rest of the miles run at an easy pace whenever you want during the week.

I'd strongly recommend this book to anyone who feels that they've stagnated with their running and wants to see what they are truly capable of with a little bit of effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for runners! May 19 2012
By Seb
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading the long and boring "Lore of running" by Timothy Noakes, I realized that even though I learned a lot I really didn't know where to go training wise. That's where Jack Daniel's book help you most, it shows you precisely the proper training for any level you are for any distance and it explains in details the intensities you should use. It's quite a simple book but, it's an effective one for increasing your performance!

4.0 out of 5 stars good Sept. 16 2002
Format:Paperback
This is a good book for the uneducated runner who wants to get better. Don't get this unless you are serious though. Anyway, it was put together really well becuase everything is simple, and it all makes sense.
