    DescriptionThis is a fresh, sophisticated, and proven method of training that capitalises on running's growing rebellion against mainstream traditional approaches. Most serious runners never realise their potential. The reason is simple: most runners are unable to run by feel. Scripted training plans hold runners back because metrics and formulas do all of the thinking for them. Runners become trained to ignore their sense of feel, which is the most powerful training tool a runner can use. By stripping away the maths and gadgetry that has controlled modern training, "Run: The Mind-Body Method of Running by Feel" will help runners break out into faster, more enjoyable training and racing. While running by feel can sound like a rejection of science, the mind-body method is rooted in major advances made in neurological research. New science has found that, even at the point of exhaustion, the body is holding back a reserve. The brain senses fatigue and prevents the body from overexertion. A runner's experience, training, and motivation determines how much of their reserve they can wield during a race. "Run" teaches readers how to listen to their bodies so they can access more of their body's capability. Bestselling endurance sports author Matt Fitzgerald reveals how elite runners and world record holders have begun to rebel against traditional training to adopt the run-by-feel philosophy. "Run" shows committed runners how to implement the mind-body method and discover a better and more fulfilling way to run.

    Review quote
    "The elements and philosophy laid out in "RUN "were fundamental and played an essential role in my overall success throughout my career as a self-coached athlete. The ability to run by feel is a learned skill and without the capacity to self assess and adjust your training intuitively, you will inevitably fall short of your potential." -- Alan Culpepper, 2000 & 2004 U.S. Olympian, sub 4-minute miler, sub 2:10 marathoner"ASICS was onto something when it chose its new name, a Latin abbreviation for 'a sound mind in a sound body.' This philosophy is the key to unlocking all the potential we hold. From my first race in junior high gym class to competing in the 2008 Olympic Marathon, I have found that the stronger my mind and spirit are, the further I am able to push myself. Any runner interested in maximizing potential must study the mind-body connection or their journey will not be complete." -- Ryan Hall, 2008 Olympian and two-time American record holder"In his latest book, Matt Fitzgerald successfully explains the mind-body method of running. While this concept can be difficult to understand, Fitzgerald describes it in a way that will speak to beginners and elite runners alike. Anyone trying to improve and realize their true running potential should read Run." -- Kara Goucher, 2008 Olympian and World Championship medalist""RUN" is full of information that will help all runners start training by feel. Once you learn to trust your instincts in training, your injuries will decrease and your personal records will fall." -- Amy Yoder Begley, 2008 Olympian and four-time U.S. national champion"The coach knows what to do, the scientist tells us why. Fitzgerald's "RUN "artfully and responsibly blends scientifically grounded supportive research and convincing anecdotal evidence into a message that those of us who take running seriously must heed. Now the U.S. can learn the true secrets of the great African runners: That voice in your head that says, "Too much, t
